Event Description: “The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) Exhibition 'A Sustainable Future for Exuma: A Traveling Toolbox' has been EXTENDED through the end of November 2016. If you have not seen this show yet, you are without a doubt missing out on the wonderful research and stories that have come together to speak so finely about the sustainability of our culture, environment, and traditions. The video below is a sneak peek of the goodness. The exhibition displays the results of a three year collaboration among the Government of The Bahamas, the Bahamas National Trust (BNT) and Harvard University Graduate School of Design. The research project was formed to facilitate the design and management of a more sustainable future for Exuma, and The Bahamas more generally ... The exhibition is centered on the project’s four central propositions: 1. Engage Widely; 2. Work on Multiple Scales; 3. Share Knowledge; 4. Imagine Futures ... The exhibition is intended as a platform for discussion. Through the exhibition and associated events and discussions, the Sustainable Future for Exuma project works to imagine and build a future, together.”Read more: NAGB's A Sustainable Future for Exuma-Event Page and The NAGB-Facebook
