Where do we go from here?

Last week the SiP executive had the first of a series of debriefing meetings to go over the successes and shortcomings of this year's inaugural festival.

What We’ve Been Up To

OK, I know it's been a little quiet over here in our corner. We've made our announcements about tickets, we've got our flyers out and about, and you're wondering when you can get in on the action and actually come get some tickets from us, am I right?

Well, if I am right (and hello, you should be wondering when you can come get some tix), know that we aren't sitting idly by waiting for stuff to happen. The biggest challenge we're having at the moment is getting our main venues to confirm that we can actually hold the festival there! Everybody's made encouraging noises, but when it comes down to the wire -- like whether we can publish our schedule without worrying about whether or not somebody's going to say Hang on, we didn't approve that and make us change it all up -- we need something concrete to lean on, and that's what's missing.

But that's par for the course in The Bahamas. The good news is that our smaller venues have all confirmed and are on board big time. For those of you who are wondering, they are:

The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas The Hub The Humidor The Marley Resort Nirvana Beach Resort

But we have to wait for the theatres to say "Yea" before we release schedule and tickets to the public.
