The Forum has sponsored musicians, artists, speakers, theater, dancers, poets and films in order to challenge, educate, uplift and astonish! It is entirely reliant on individual, corporate and foundation support to fulfill its mission.
For more information, visit the website at https://www.facebook.com/TheForumUSVI/ or email The Forum at [email protected].
These events are made possible through the collaboration of the Forum, the University of the Virgin Islands, UJF and the V.I. Department of Education. They are “jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington D.C., a federal agency.”
