On Saturday, November 3rd 2018, the National Museum on Grand Turk hosted a Museum Day Community event. The purpose of the day was to reintroduce residents of the community to Turks and Caicos National Museum and to introduce new programming by the museum. The new programming includes the “People of the Islands Oral History Project”, a Community Mosaic on the boundary wall for the museum and garden and a monthly children’s club program to begin in January 2019.
The mosaic project was especially well received as both kids and adults really embraced the creation of the mosaic. We look forward to the continued involvement of the Grand Turk community as the mosaic is continued over the next year.
The tremendous support and participation shows that the Museum continues to receive the support of the community of Grand Turk.
The day could not have happened without the kind support of our sponsors: Carnival, Morris Cottingham, Blue Water Divers, Jack Shack, Oasis Divers, Turks Head Inne, Salt Raker, Digicel, Exclusive Escapes, White Sands Charters n’ Tours, Osprey, and Island Creations. A special thank you also goes to all of our volunteers who helped to make the day a success.
