Blank Canvas: May 29th, 2019, Rowena Poitier-Sutherland

On this week’s Blank Canvas we speak with Mrs Rowena Poitier-Sutherland, the Executive Director of Culture at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture to find out what the Ministry is planning for the summer.

Their camps offer both paid work experience and volunteerism, including opportunities for young Bahamians to be exposed to all forms of the arts (playwriting, film directing, Junkanoo, choral arts, etc) at their free summer camps which take place all over the country (including the Family Islands!). We also learn about the direction the Ministry is taking to advocate for the growth of the Orange Economy in The Bahamas and how we can empower Bahamians with culture.

Tune in and join the conversation! The Blank Canvas airs every Wednesday on Guardian Talk Radio, 96.9 FM.
