EAST YARD Community Arts Centre is the premier creative community arts space in East Trinidad. Created in 2017 by local arts promotion and education non-profit organization, Caribbean Fashion and Arts Feature Festival, EAST YARD is a cultural hub designed to connect and engage the local community on a regular and ongoing basis by championing creativity in all its forms

Each month, EAST YARD and Nicki Consulting invite you to explore, express and experience an evening of intriguing theme based spoken word, visual arts, music, and performance art.

This month's theme is Mental Health.

EAST TALKS are held on the last Sunday of each month. This month’s session will be livestreamed so don’t miss out!

From April 1st to May 22nd EAST YARD ran an art competition to showcase young talent while celebrating our local first responders at the forefront of the Covid-19 battle. On Monday 3rd August, EAST YARD held a small prize giving ceremony for the winners, Josiah Telesford, Shael Galera and Mya Aqui, all students of the El Dorado East Secondary School. The winning students received cash prizes, and their creations will be featured at EAST YARD and as murals in a public space in Arima.
