Creative Nassau's Straw Documentary, "Strawcraft of The Bahamas: weaving economic diversity" which showcases the fascinating story of this traditional Bahamian craft, was officially launched on Thursday May 5, 2016 at its home base, Doongalik Studios Art Gallery at #20 Village Road, Nassau, Bahamas.
Written and produced by CN Vice President, Patricia Glinton-Meicholas, this 15-minute documentary is another amazing accomplishment for the organization whose mission is to 'celebrate and promote Bahamian Art, Culture & Heritage from the Inside Out'.
Copies of the documentary, in DVD and Blu-ray format, are now available for sale at the Gallery. The following photographs of the evening's event show the interaction with the interested audience before and during the filming and the display of strawcraft from several of the talented straw artisans from the Creative Nassau bi-weekly Market in Pompey Square, Bay Street.
