Architecture, Design and Sustainable Development

Thursday 21st June 2012  6:30 PM

Architecture, Design and Sustainable Development National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) June 21st, 6:30PM – 8:30PM Wouldn’t it be great to have a smart, stimulating conversation that was actually interesting? We think so too. Our big idea at tmg* is to make Nassau a more liveable city by providing a forum for intelligent, engaging and diverse conversation. tmg* talks is a series of panel discussions among innovators in related industries about design, business and the creative economy in The Bahamas. Our panellists and audience come from all professions but share an interest in stimulating and relevant conversations that they can’t find anywhere else. tmg* talks is the Bahamas’ only panel conversation on design, business and the creative economy. The big idea behind tmg* talks is to make Nassau a more liveable city by encouraging diverse thinking and openness. It’s an experiment that should continue. Click HERE to visit tmg website Last year, we started tmg* talks, a 3-series panel discussion on architecture, design, the Bahamian narrative and the creative economy. This year we’re focussing on sustain+ability, but not just in the green sense. The ability to sustain involves a strategic design process. We’re talking about the built environment, the economy and well, about people. That’s why we’ve put together an amazing group of panellists who are changing business paradigms and creative ecosystems. The three sessions will occur monthly from June to August .

Last year, they looked at how architecture and design show a city’s character and inform our behaviour in a space. This year, tmg* wants to talk about the importance of holistic design, sustainable architecture and planning in land development, especially on islands with an expanding population. Is this type of design thinking happening? Are there policies in place to support it? If not, what can we do about it? On Thursday, June 21st at the NAGB beginning at 6.30pm, tmg* will be hosting its first talk of the season on "Architecture, Design and Sustainable Development". Panelists: Franon Wilson, President, Arawak Homes | Carlos Hepburn, Principal, TDG Architects | James Malcolm, Director of Marketing, Sales and Public Relations, Schooner Bay, Abaco Click HERE for more information on the series of talks.

Bahamas Independence Day!
Bahamas Independence Day!

Tuesday 10th July 2012

Independence Day Happy Independence Day Bahamas! The Bahamas is a sovereign, independent, nation. Political and legal traditions closely follow those of the United Kingdom and the Westminster system. The government of the Bahamas is a parliamentary democracy with two main parties, the Free National Movement and the Progressive Liberal Party. National flag The colors embodied in the design of the Bahamian flag symbolise the image and aspirations of the people of The Bahamas; the design reflects aspects of the natural environment (sun, sand, and sea) and the economic and social development. The flag is a black equilateral triangle against the mast, superimposed on a horizontal background made up of two colours on three equal stripes of aquamarine, gold and aquamarine. The symbolism of the flag is as follows: Black, a strong colour, represents the vigour and force of a united people, the triangle pointing towards the body of the flag represents the enterprise and determination of the Bahamian people to develop and possess the rich resources of sun and sea symbolized by gold and aquamarine respectively. In reference to the representation of the people with the colour black, some white Bahamians have joked that they are represented in the thread which "holds it all together. Coat of arms The Coat of Arms of The Bahamas contains a shield with the national symbols as its focal point. The shield is supported by a marlin and a flamingo, which are the national animals of The Bahamas. The flamingo is located on the land, and the marlin on the sea, indicating the geography of the islands. National flower The yellow elder was chosen as the national flower of The Bahamas because it is native to the Bahama Islands, and it blooms throughout the year. Selection of the yellow elder over many other flowers was made through the combined popular vote of members of all four of New Providence's garden clubs of the 1970s – the Nassau Garden Club, the Carver Garden Club, the International Garden Club, and the YWCA Garden Club.
