48th Bermuda Festival Outreach Programme

October 31, 2022

The Bermuda Festival of Performing Arts kicks off its 48th season on November 4th and already they have over 1000 people signed up for the first three outreach programmes.

Cindy Campbell, Executive Director of the Bermuda Festival says “This year’s Outreach is bigger than ever with 20 unique activities and 37 workshops scheduled from November to May. The Bermuda Festival is passionate about the value of arts education to the whole community, and we have expanded our outreach programmes to include schools, underserved communities and the public. As always, all outreach workshops are free.”

The spokesperson said, “Each artist performing at the Bermuda Festival participates in our outreach education creating bespoke programmes appropriately designed for the age and position of their participants.”

Cindy Campbell says, “We are thrilled to have as a strategic partner this year, Butterfield, who as a company recognizes the indelible and positive impact of arts involvement for the community and youth. They have supported The Festival by funding a 4-day residency programme for the next three Bermuda Festival Seasons. This program will feature a diverse range of artists which will alternate between theatre, music, and dance companies. The 2022/2023 Butterfield Artists in Residence is The Actors From The London Stage! The touring group have extensive experience both as performers and workshops facilitators. In addition to their workshops, they will be performing Macbeth at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts on November 18th and 19th.

The spokesperson said, “Another incredibly exciting introduction into the Bermuda Festival Outreach Programme is the ‘Creatives Club’ led by young creative and the Bermuda Festival Social Media coordinator, Mikaela Joy Kawaley-Lathan. Ten young artists between the ages of 19 and 29 have signed up to be a part of The Creatives Club. They will attend Festival shows together, then meet to discuss the performance and how what they saw will impact their art!”

Ms Kawaley-Lathan says, “I believe it’s important to invest in Bermuda’s young creatives – whether it’s time, exposure or new experiences. We have such a fun group and I’m so looking forward to hearing their thoughts and ideas moving forward and as we build a little community.”
