The Experience:
The event will be held at a boarding school creating a space for the hackers to focus, collaborate and be mentored for 3 days as they create minimum viable projects solving problems in the Bahamas using technology.

Think mini-business school meets Shark Tank for a 21st Century blended learning experience.

They will pitch these projects on Sunday, the last day of a 3 day conference.

The event has been created and entirely funded mostly by Bahamian businesses, a principal and global MD of Goldman Sachs (to include abused and neglected youth), CKR Law Charitable (to increase education of women in blockchain) and local enthusiasts of all ages.

Also a tech hub for youth in the East Street South studying the curriculum has been launched with the support of Bahamian entrepreneurs and local businesses donating their time and resources to create a fun, safe learning hub for the kids. Blockchain is the first curriculum being offered.

The Organizers:
The cofounding catalysts are 3 non-profit organizations:
Rotary Clubs (Bahamas)
CryptoChicks International Education Hub (Canada)
Harness All Possibilities (a US 501(c)3 founded by Bahamian, Rhonda Eldridge).

Rhonda has curated, hosted, collaborated and participated in numerous blockchain events about 3 years and has been selected as a DevCon V Scholar, amongst 50 other candidates from around the world to participate in the Ethereum Foundation’s blockchain and cryptocurrency programming in Osaka, Japan.

The Lightning Tree Theatre Production

Friday 23rd August 2019  7:00 PM

"What is the price of a child's innocence?" - Zhindzi Mastersen.
The Lightning Tree is a riveting and timely theater production (the debut production of The Peculiar Generation Company) written by law student Desire M. Edwards. It is a legal drama which follows the story of two female juvenile defense attorneys on their quest for justice for a teenage girl who was sexually assaulted on her school's campus. The play's major themes of discovering knowledge and finding truth and healing all work together to illuminate an issue that has plagued The Bahamas for many, many generations. In The Bahamas, child molestation and other unreported cases of sexual abuse are a hugely unspoken evil. This production's goal, is to shine a light on this fact and hopefully raise the eyebrows of those who can make a difference.
The Dundas Theatre - General Admission: $35 - VIP: $45
Tickets available at The Lightning Tree Theater Production
