EmergingArtists Initiative
Supported by RBC Foundation, Emerging Artists Programme

In 2023, thanks to the support of RBC’s Emerging Artists programme, Jamii launched its first Emerging Artists Initiative that invited 6 artists, from different arts forms, in the emergence of their artistic career for a one-year programme that supported their artistic growth.

This one-year (about 88hrs/artist) programme was customized to each artist participating and offered:

1) Artistic practice support (through mentorship and access to a creative space);

2) Creative industry management and networking support;

3) Public exposure with exhibition, screening, performance and more.

This initiative follows in the footsteps of Laini, a 2022 RBC funded initiative that supports young women in creative leadership programme. This is also an initiative the community has directly requested Jamii to pursue as part of a strategic planning initiative in the Summer of 2022. 

The six emerging artists who benefited from this exceptional programme are Sabrine S Hakam (photographer), Yasmine Omar (photographer), Karen Lam (visual artist and actress), Gillian Mapp (photographer), Darwin Peters (painter) and Morningstar Quill (photographer) - all 6 identifying as BIPOC.

Based on the success of the programme, we foresee Jamii’s Emerging Artist Initiative growing in 2024 and beyond.
