Big River International Artists’ Workshop was hosted by Contemporary Caribbean Arts (CCA) in collaboration with the Triangle Arts Trust. Held in 1999 and 2001 at Grande Riviere in the north coast of Trinidad, around 23 artists - mostly from the wider Caribbean region - were invited to each workshop. Artists were encouraged to experiment and to develop new ideas.

Much of the work produced was made in collaboration with the people of Grande Riviere village. During the Open Day, about 600 people visited from all parts of Trinidad.

In 1999 the exhibition of the workshop was held at the National Museum of Port of Spain. For the second workshop the work was exhibited at the Main Gallery at CCA.
