Sonia has been awarded a Catapult Stay Home Artist Residency to begin on 5th of October. The Stay Home Artist Residency is one of six opportunities to support Caribbean creatives offered by the Catapult | A Caribbean Arts Grant initiative, a COVID-19 relief programme made possible through a collaboration between Kingston Creative, Fresh Milk, and the American Friends of Jamaica. Targeting participants living and working across the Caribbean, these funded opportunities aim to bring collective visibility to over 1,000 Caribbean-based artists and enable their growth, especially those exploring broad critical themes of culture, human rights, gender, LGBTQIA+, and Climate Justice from Caribbean perspectives.
Beginning on October 5 and running for two months, Sonia will use her residency to begin several artist’s book projects that explore our transient existence in an age of climate injustice, engaging with repurposed texts. Over the course of her residency she will share updates on her progress through her Instagram account and blog entries on the Catapult platform.
