BARBADOS - National Cultural Foundation

Bridgetown Today and Tomorrow

Article Posted: Oct 16, 2003

A lecture in the 375th Bridgetown Anniversary Lecture Series featured speaker for the evening will be The Hon. Billie Miller, Senior Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, who lectured on the topic: Bridgetown Today and Tomorrow.

In an abstract from her lecture, Minister Miller notes, “Our history has much to teach us and the colourful history of Bridgetown is no different. Though its past has been varied, its ability to exist and prosper as one of the major trading ports and communication centres in the English World is the result of its state of readiness for change and an adaptability that was built into its structure for survival. It is this kind of change that will propel a and modern Bridgetown into the future for generations to come.”

She further adds, “In this 21st Century, the plans of the Government of Barbados in the implementation of its Urban Redevelopment Programme are about positive changes for 2050 and beyond. Change does not mean destruction or abandonment; rather it is taking the best of what exists, enhancing it and making it more relevant to present day. Bridgetown’s Redevelopment Programme is about the healing of a city, making it applicable to today’s priorities and re-energizing it to compete successfully in tomorrow’s world. This will be key to the role that Bridgetown will have to play in this millennium.”

Minister’s Miller lecture concludes the series that began in January of this year that have been jointly hosted by the Barbados Museum & Historical Society, the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) and the University of the West Indies (UWI), Faculty of Humanities, Department of History. Bridgetown as one of the earliest English commercial ports in the West Indies reached the milestone of 375 years in July of this year.

The public is being encouraged to attend this educational event that examines and applauds the development of this historically rich city.
