Their work is inspired by Trinidad’s tradition of communal urban yard spaces and mas camps – workshops where Carnival bands create their costumes. They also run a residency program that brings artists, curators, and others to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. Alice Yard is administered and curated by architect Sean Leonard, artist Christopher Cozier, writer and editor Nicholas Laughlin, and designer Kriston Chen, with the support of an evolving network of collaborators, headquartered at their Granderson Lab space in the Port of Spain neighborhood of Belmont.
