We believe that connecting the Bahamian people to our rich history is essential for the preservation of culture and heritage. We also believe that recognizing and celebrating those individuals who have helped/ are helping to preserve, protect and promote our history and heritage is equally important.

To this instance, we are pleased to announce the inaugural “AMMC Living History Awards”. We understand the need to preserve our past to promote our future. The awards ceremony is intended to:

– Recognize Bahamian talent where significant contributions are made to achieve the goal of AMMC.
– Educate the Bahamian populace about our history, including research findings, archaeological facts,    and sites.
– Create greater awareness in the public about the role of the AMMC and every Bahamian’s part to play in telling the story – past, present and future – of our unique and fascinating history.

This highly anticipated Awards Ceremony will be hosted at Baha Mar’s Convention Centre on Sunday, December 3, 2017, with a cocktail reception immediately following.
