The Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts History

 

The Dundas was founded in the early 1930s as a training centre for domestics. In the 1960s, it was transformed into an arts centre by leading Bahamian cultural activitists such as Meta Davis Cumberbatch, E. Clement Bethel, Donald Cartwright, and Winston Saunders. In 1970 it was reincorporated as a performing arts centre with the goal: “To encourage and assist in the development of all forms of cultural activity in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and to permit the production and private or public presentations of theatrical plays, dramas, musical comedies, farce comedies, operas, operettas, ballets.”
