The past week has provided the opportunity for Creative Nassau to be broadcast over the radio airwaves! On Thursday, May 12 CN President Pam Burnside was a guest of Ed Fields Live talking about "Cultural Protectionism":
Some would argue that The Bahamas is losing its identity because it does not adequately protect its heritage; its culture. While others would counter by saying it is insular to lock out other influences and that both the old and the new can co-exist.
There is no fiercer warrior than Pam Burnside when it comes to cultural authenticism. On Thursday, Rogan Smith and me find out exactly what that means. Does it allow for us to progress culturally or does it stunt our growth if rigidly adhered to.
whilst Vice President, Patricia Glinton-Meicholas was one of the guests of international broadcaster, Peter Greenberg on Friday, May 13 as he broadcast from Atlantis on Paradise Island.
The following is with kind courtesy from Mr Greenberg's facebook post of that date:
