Culture

Residency

Our residency program is focused on accommodating and nurturing artists with direct or indirect links or interests in the Caribbean. Collaboration and conversation are the guiding principles of the program and the selection process is based on candidates with proposals that most powerfully or creatively engage with the local environment or heritage of islands. Synergy is the most important selection criteria as our most exciting collaborations spark from simple conversations, so we encourage interested artists to reach out directly to residency@palmheights.com rather than the estate hosting frequent open calls.

Radio

Any Caymanian will tell you that radio on island punches above its weight with numerous stations. Palm Heights features its own recorded radio program with our first broadcast series being developed with FOOD NY.

Food

Food is the heart of Palm Heights. Sharing food is the most participatory activity we indulge in on a daily basis and culinary collaborations are the lifeblood of the estate. Spearheaded by Gerardo Gonzalez, our food program features permanent dining spaces including Tillies led by Chef Jake Brodsky and The Coconut Club featuring Dr Aris Latham as well as collaborative residency projects with an esoteric mix of chefs, artists, food scientists, designers and academics.

Art

Our suites feature a unique collection of works and the estate is home to growing of works that reflect the heritage of the Caribbean and local environment. Our commissioning program is an ongoing labour of love to commission works that will engage audiences to think differently about the region. Palm Heights also hosts an ongoing residency program.

Library

Palm Heights library is an organic collection of literary gems that reflect the spirit of this Caribbean Beach Estate. The library features titles from the mid century to present day spanning 1st editions, philosophy, history, design, art and culture, biography, business, regional ephemera, fiction, wellness and more.
