Masterworks launches new fundraising campaign

Staff at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, which has launched a new fundraising drive

Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art has launched a fundraising campaign called “183 and the Power of WE” – calling on people to donate $183.

Executive Director, Risa Hunter said: “183 and the Power of WE” is a significant campaign title for several reasons For one, 183 is the physical address of the Museum being located on 183 South Road, Botanical Gardens.

“Secondly, we firmly believe in the idea that each one of us can give collectively to a cause. “The Power of WE” highlights the real impact each individual donation can have.

“A non-profit like ours is truly the sum of its parts and everyone should feel that they can play a role in giving back to their community.”

Masterworks recently launched its “Strategic Vision: 2021-2025” which acts as the blueprint for the next four years at the Museum.

As part of this, the Masterworks team has mapped out its Education Strategy for this year in a direct response to the impact of the pandemic on local wellbeing.

Mrs Hunter added: “The next four years will be an extraordinary time, as we maintain our vibrant museum and undertake progressive projects.

“To realise our potential, we will be bold in our approach of driving our goals, including reaching a broader and more diverse audience, making art a stronger influence in our lives and using art as a means of enhancing connection across sectors of our community.

“We believe that building a shared understanding of Bermuda history and heritage through the visual arts can forge stronger social cohesion.”

She added: “I am extremely lucky to have an incredible team of Bermudians working alongside me to make this vision a reality. We have big dreams for Masterworks, but to get there we must focus on what is directly in front of us now.

“As we propel ourselves forward, we are seeking support for the launch of this Strategic Vision and our Education platform from both members and the broader community.”

Community Engagement Coordinator, Rebecca Raveneau, said: “One gift of $183 can make all the difference for a small organisation likes ours. The Bermuda people, as a collective, have the power to sustain our museum so that it thrives in years to come.”
