The Transforming Spaces art tour began in 2004, and since then this annual event has redefined the perception of Bahamian art and creativity, and provided exposure for hundreds of local artists. The format continues to evolve and now also features live performances and visits to non-traditional galleries in order to attract a varied audience, including locals and visitors.
On this occasion, winter residents and locals come together in celebration and exchange of various cultures, to foster a stronger bond between them, and to encourage Winter Residents who live in Andros to promote Andros and The Bahamas as a number one tourist destination.
This exciting community-based Junkanoo parade is the annual reunion for hundreds of residents and visitors alike. It blends the traditional music and dance of Junkanoo with local variants, making for unique entertainment.
