COMMITMENT TO ACTION
West End Anguillan Made Arts & Crafts Center
Commitment by Time Equities Inc.
In 2019, Anguilla United Relief Fund (AURF) committed to create the West End Anguillan Made Arts & Craft Center, a studio and showcase space for local artists in Anguilla, to support art making and artisan entrepreneurial activity on the island. After the hurricane, the tourism industry in Anguilla lost 4.2M in GDP. The need to restore and rebuild travelers’ confidence and desire to visit Anguilla remains more pressing than ever. With this in mind, there is a need to focus on local artisans, supporting local creators, artists, and entrepreneurs on island. Through this commitment, AURF will develop a 40x30 ft space for artists and artisans to create, show, and sell their work. The space will accommodate up to five artists at a time to display their work. The building will be located in proximity to major hotels and will serve to support culture and, in turn, bolster tourism.
