Last friday it was all about art at UniArte’s Meet & Greet Dutch Caribbean Artist in Amsterdam-Zuidoost. An Art Exhibition, which  included different types of art such as spoken word, theater, films, sculptures, paintings, and photography by Dutch Caribbean artists.
Upcoming young artists  and art lovers met each other at a spectacular expo to network in an ambiance of creativity. An initiative by UniArte who wants to expose Dutch Caribbean people in a positive light. 
Bookish Plaza was also there with a bookstand pushing the Caribbean art of writing forward. Our own writer Quito Nicolaas read from his novel Verborgen leegte [Hidden Emptiness].
