NAGB News


The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas recently launched two powerful initiatives in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian - in partnership with various charities and organisations committed to response efforts. This newsletter provides information about our Donation Drive and We Gatchu: Sanctuary After The Storm campaigns. Additionally, the NAGB remains committed to delivering its regular programming as we continue to educate, uplift and inspire.

Donation Drive
Lend a Helping Hand
In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, the NAGB has partnered with various organisations to support relief efforts. While every item is important, we would like to encourage the donation of toys and special items for children in addition to non-perishable items.

Your selfless donations will go a long way in recovery efforts, but if you would like to donate by volunteering your time, please visit  https://forms.gle/kVgUvNcHno3wzJZW7.

Your NAGB is Here for You!
Due to imminent poor weather conditions, Friday evening's "Diggin' Deep + Letting Go" event is postponed. Don't worry, we aren't cancelling! We are simply going to put it off until the weather subsides. Hold tight for the new date, and hold firm. This means we get more time to get the drumming, poetry, and music extra tight for you all. We gatchu.
Stay Tuned for the New Date
Create Space Healing Sessions
As part of the NAGB’s joint initiative “We Gatchu: Sanctuary After The Storm”, we've teamed up with artist and art therapist Susan Moir Mackay to bring Create Space to those impacted by Hurricane Dorian. 
Create Space is a safe art space that is open to everyone. It is a space for emotions or quietness after Dorian. A space for reflecting or becoming absorbed in art-making. Working with art materials after a crisis can be a tool for restoring a sense of safety, connection and rebuilding agency and grounding for individuals and communities. This is our intention for Create Space.
The first of three such events will be held at the NAGB on Friday, September 13th, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Let's Get Creative Together
