The Cultural Legacy Fund was established one year ago during our 400th anniversary celebrations. Minister Butterfield said “The intent of this initiative is to show, through tangible means, Government’s assistance for community endeavours which promote, maintain and celebrate our cultural heritage, through artistic development, education and research.

“The fund is also aimed at promoting projects and events that are of national significance; further demonstrating Government’s dedication to the preservation and celebration of Bermuda’s culture and heritage. Thus, the financial assistance provided by way of the Cultural Legacy Fund is but one means of supporting, protecting, preserving, promoting and celebrating our culture and heritage.”
