Kulchurama is a three-part fundraising event focused on sending at least €2000 of raised funds for COVID relief to Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Martin and St. Eustatius.
Kulchurama will take place on Saturdays the 3rd, 10th, and 17th of April 2021, live-streamed from WORM Rotterdam. During each event, we will be hosting online panel discussions, workshops and artistic performances by creators from the islands. On the last day, we’ll close off with a big bash featuring multiple performances by local artists.
All the money raised will be donated directly to charities based on every individual island (find list of charities at the bottom of the page.) So, if you would like to contribute or simply attend and support the creators, keep an eye on the organiser’s page they will be posting updates regularly.

On the final day of Kulchurama, we will have a panel discussion on the important issue -neocolonialism and its presence on the islands of Bonaire and Saba. The panellists for this topic are Alfrida Martis & Rudina Gomez from Bonaire.
Alfrida and her partner founded Caribbean Ancestry Club – an organization that focuses on unifying and amplifying voices of Afro-indigenous Caribbean people. Rudina is an artist who runs her own company called Muse Co, as well as the co-host and producer of the OnBrand podcast, which is a bi-weekly paplish show.
Another two panellists from Saba will join. Lysanne Charles – a candidate for the political party BIJ1 and Demetri – a journalist from Saba living in St. Martin who is keen on the topic and frequently has open conversations about neocolonialism and decolonization.
As a grand finale to the event, we will have performances by multiple artists from different islands such as Giraluna (poet), Kaylly van der Linden (dancer), and Jasir Gressmann (storyteller & singer). One of the panellists, Lysanne Charles, will also be performing a poem.
Community is what Canoas di Caribe value the most! Attend, support the artists, donate – your contribution in any way is greatly appreciated!
