Celebrating Caribbean arts and culture, empowering artists, and fostering appreciation for the diverse artistic expressions of the Caribbean islands.

Our Mission

At Braata, we are committed to providing a platform for Caribbean and Caribbean-American artists to share their remarkable work and talents.

Braata Productions is dedicated to giving Caribbean and Caribbean-American artistes a platform through which to showcase their work and talents. Our mission is to bring Caribbean culture, artists, music, stories, movement and theatre into prominent spaces while achieving greater recognition for our various art forms. 

We provide entertainment and education to our patrons, and give voice to our diverse experiences, performers, writers and directors. We aim to represent with creative authenticity the culture of the Caribbean islands.  

By dedicating itself to three guiding principles—quality, diversity and community—Braata Productions seeks to be the premier Caribbean cultural organization in New York City, providing productions and programs that make an essential contribution to the quality of life in our city. 

Our Vision

Braata’s vision is to play a part in creating a world where the cultural and historical traditions of the Caribbean islands are woven into the beautiful tapestry of global arts used to teach and inspire new generations to always reach for more.

Our Values

​WE BELIEVE exposure to the arts can transform lives. Art in all its forms has a way of working its way into the souls of all people, no matter where they are on their journeys or what obstacles stand in their way. Art teaches and inspires. It motivates people to be their best selves.

WE BELIEVE that all people, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, or income level, should have access to all forms of art for the healing of their souls and the teaching of their minds, from performances of music and theatre, to the culinary and visual arts.

WE BELIEVE in the power of story to teach and inspire, and that the stories of our ancestors made us who we are today. In that spirit, these stories must be told and retold.

WE BELIEVE that the cultures and peoples of the Caribbean islands and the diaspora have made special and unique contributions to human history and that these contributions should be shared and honored forever.

WE BELIEVE that lasting learning happens through experience. When people touch, taste, hear, see and smell, lasting lessons take form in the mind.

WE BELIEVE that the global epidemic of isolation and loneliness is broken through interaction with other people and cultures, by engaging the senses through communal experiences.

WE BELIEVE in the spirit of “braata,” or “more.” Our job as artists and educators is to continuously provide more of Caribbean heritage at its best while preserving our rich and varied West Indian history and cultural contributions. We believe in working toward the shared goal of inspiring people be more
