Hmmm…definitely starting to get a little chillier isn’t it? Good thing there are lots of things coming up to keep you distracted:
- First up, tonight at the Bermuda Society of Arts at City Hall (BSoA) is the opening night of Mind Frame & PhotoVoice, an exhibition on the power of recovery and the human mind through art and photography by the clients of the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute. This will be from 5pm until 8pm, with a live performance with Chewsticks at 7pm. The exhibition will run until Wednesday, October 13th. Here’s the flyer.
- Keep Bermuda Beautiful’s Annual Marine Clean Up, originally scheduled for Saturday, September 18th, is now going to be a week later on Saturday, September 25th.

- I mentioned this in a previous post but for anyone looking for a little more information on the Weekend Film Series debut on Sunday, here’s a press release.
- Cambridge Beaches have moved their Around the World Dinner from this Friday to Friday, October 1st. I updated the original post, which you can see by clicking on the event name in the Quick Recap section below.

- Evolution of the Trail: The 6th International African Diaspora Heritage Trail Conference & Gala will be hosted in Bermuda between Thursday, October 14th and Sunday, October 17th. For those of you unfamiliar with this, The African Diaspora Heritage Trail (ADHT) is a transnational heritage tourism initiative launched by the Bermuda Department of Tourism in 2002. Designed to benefit the countries of the African Diaspora by providing accessible expertise and technical assistance in the development of heritage tourism programs, the conference is convened by the Bermudian government through the ADHT Foundation. Actor/activist Danny Glover is the Honorary Chairman who has supported the program for the past seven years. Premier Dr. Brown is the Chairman of the Board and Michelle Burrows is the Executive Director of the Foundation. The first event on Thursday, October 14th will be Know Your History, Determine Your Future, a Youth Film Workshop with Dr. Niyi Coker, Jr, PhD at Liberty Theatre on from 10am until 12.30pm. The next event that evening is a Conversation with Friends of the Diaspora at Bermuda National Gallery from 5.30pm until 7.30pm. The next day, Friday, October 15th is the Diaspora VIP Welcome Reception at Prospero’s Cave at Grotto Beach Hotel. This will be from 6.30pm until 9.30pm. The Conference itself, Evolution of the Trail: The 6th International African Diaspora Heritage Trail Conference, will be at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess on Saturday, October 16th from 8am until 4pm. That evening from 7.30pm until 10pm is the African Diaspora Gala and Premier’s Farewell at the Lido Complex at Elbow Beach Resort. The finale to the conference will be on Sunday, October 17th, with the African Diaspora Heritage Trail Bermuda Tour, departing from Grotto Bay Beach Hotel at 10am and finishing at 12 noon. There is an Early Bird Special until September 30th so ticket pricing until then is as follows: Conference Only (this also includes the Sunday Tour) is $125.00; African Diaspora Gala Dinner is $125.00; Premier Package (which includes October 16th and 17th events) is $225.00; and the VIP package (which includes all events from the 14th until the 17th) is $275.
