INPULSE

 

The InPulse program was undertaken by Rubis Mécénat in 2015, in collaboration with Rubis Energy Jamaica, the Rubis Group’s Jamaican subsidiary, in the volatile community of Dunoon Park, East Kingston. It aims to empower Jamaican youth and improve the environment and lives of young adults from local communities through the practice of visual arts as a positive means of expression. A creative platform and program for developing life skills, InPulse offers visual arts workshops run by local and international artists and general educational courses. The program also introduces participants to the art market and its players. Each year, it awards scholarships to the most promising students to enable them to pursue their studies in the arts in Kingston.

 

For the past six years, InPulse has sought to promote the sustainable development of young people in local communities through training in the visual arts, offering them new perspectives and giving them new keys to find their way in an urban environment prone to instability and vulnerability. By giving the young artists in the program access to a network of professionals enriched by cultural actors in the Caribbean, InPulse also promotes exchanges with artists and cultural institutions in the region.

 

“This program is vital in Jamaica. What I admire in particular, other than the opportunities it provides, is the way it introduces participants to professional practice early on. These are tools that young artists often lack.”
