In late 2020, CFAFF received a grant from the United States Embassy of Trinidad and Tobago to implement locally, an “International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)” inspired program. Executed in collaboration with the World Affairs Council of Kentucky and Southern Indiana, the program called FOR COMMON GOOD Arima x Louisville Exchange utilizes arts and culture to provide a social change network and platform, delivered virtually).

This social change network and platform is expected to foster long-term, self-sustained relationships and institutional linkages among organizations in the United States and Trinidad and Tobago through capacity building support, cross-sector exchanges and cultivating alliances on arts for social change projects.

The FOR COMMON GOOD Youth Arts Enrichment Program (YAEP) offers a precious opportunity for young people to develop their unique identities and build skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. With arts education at its core, this online, community driven program will not only build the visual arts, drama, music and dance skills of participants but also expose them to the concepts of art for social change and cultural diplomacy.


Building on CFAFF's previous youth arts programs, this pilot started in 2021 and allows Trinidad and Tobago based youth between the ages of 14-18 to get the opportunity to participate in an exchange with champions from around the globe.
