Community & Collaboration

There is no I.C.E without community and collaboration.

Global interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and skills

I.C.E was established to support cooperation between tenants of S.T.E.A.M (Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics). It creates space for integration of disciplines for the common goal of collective and individual sustainable development.

Tapping into the power of community and collaboration, I.C.E creates greater opportunities for interdisciplinary and transcultural collaborations where through coexisting and sharing, individuals are both encouraged and supported in the advancement of their various works. Project I.C.E however is bigger than individual solutions, it is committed to cultivating a community that is passionate about contributing to global change and development. 

Programming at I.C.E has developed organically through projects with a few of our partners. 

Lend a Hand are in the process of transforming their former distribution space into Project Hope, a hub for creative development. Additional projects include the Summer Arts Immersion’s ‘Flying High’ mural project with Nassau Airport Development Company, I.C.E Caribbean and Transforming Spaces’ (TS) art tour and experience will continue to engage the community and activate I.C.E. Numerous projects will be activated in the months to come. Everything done at I.C.E revolves around the concept and value of empowering communities.

Alexandria Robinson: Collaborating Artist

Alex is a 2014 graduate of St. Augustine’s College. She studied Fine Art at Moore College of Art & Design and graduated with a Bachelors degree in 2018, and is now receiving her Masters degree in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College of Art in London, UK.

She has shown her work at Moore Galleries in Philadelphia, PA, The Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, PA, Nomad Gallery In Brussels, Belgium, and AKAA Contemporary Art Fair in Paris, France. 

Alex has been passionate about issues surrounding identity within subjects of the diaspora since a 3 month internship in Accra, Ghana in 2017. She’s constantly thinking about how this identity shifts as a result of worldly factors. One worldly factor being climate change, which is more apparent within third world countries, is one she is thinking about currently. She explores these topics through her art, and interacting with the earth, gardening for example. She hopes to bring about awareness of how climate change affects the destruction of not only assets but culture, and hopes this encourages not only careful treatment of our surroundings but most importantly of our history as Bahamian people. She aims to build a sense of resilience within herself and the people she interacts, and provoke action within communities where necessary in order to overcome current and future challenges.

Central Bank Makers' Space

The Makers' room promises to revolutionise how one can experience a museum. The space will be the intersection between education and entertainment. It will involve exploration, learning and application of cutting edge technology and present an opportunity to connect with sound historical knowledge. Here, a variety of Augmented Reality, Mixed and Virtual Reality can be created and applied in a variety of open source software and traditional or other technological tools. Visitors of the space will be able to immerse themselves in a historical experience of important artefacts, nation buildings and stories.
The Makers' Space will explore three different projects in 2020. It is set to become a Think Tank and laboratory, using and teaching state of the art open source software like Blender, among others.

Lend a Hand

We partnered with Lend a hand to use a portion of the space as a relief hub. Initially, I.C.E was used as a donation, relief distribution and operations space. Their programming focused on meeting the immediate basic needs of those impacted by Hurricane Dorian and are shifting into the needs of the whole person in order to facilitate a more holistic healing and overall recovery. The conversion into Project Hope has begun. The space is evolving into a center for creative expression and stimulation for artistic and creative growth and development.

Furthermore, there will be classes in self defence running and additional programs are being developed.

Island Foodology

Island Foodology (IF) is a social entrepreneurship start-up whose main objectives are focused on re-purposing food, adding value to locally harvested produce and meat to reduce food waste and finding innovative solutions to food security issues and challenges in The Bahamas.  Island Foodology (IF) recognizes the challenges of Bahamian producers and consumers along the food value chain and believes in collaboration with small holder farmers and fisherman to solve these issues. IF will seek to empower agri-preneurs through training, product development, maintaining food safety standards and showcasing producers through creating a farm gate sales environment.  IF believes that for food security and sustainability in The Bahamas it is important to create an atmosphere to link consumers to their food directly and allow Bahamian farmers to tell their story so that local consumers and international consumers that visit our shores have better access and appreciate the value of locally produced Bahamian food.

The C.U.B.E.S

The C.U.B.E.S are a group of  young artists specializing in various skills and styles that aim to educate, explore, and evolve. They will offer advice and exposure to different aspects of art for the youth.
