Baccalieu Trail Public Folklore Project - A meeting November 17th

The Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) office of the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is starting an ICH project-based training program along the Baccalieu Trail. The program is intended to help local heritage organizations work from start to finish, as they develop and produce an ICH documentation project. The project will be run by provincial folklorist Dale Jarvis, in cooperation with heritage and municipal organizations along the Baccalieu Trail.

"We will be hosting a first meeting in Cupids to present on the overall project," says Jarvis. "We will be talking about different aspects of local culture, and trying to get a sense of what communities are most worried about losing."

The project will serve as a best-practice example for future organizations or communities who wish to implement their own oral history, folklore, folklife festivals, and other ICH projects. The process will be documented by the HFNL staff, and made accessible to other groups digitally as a guide for future projects.

A Baccalieu Trail community meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 at 7:30p.m. Jarvis will present on the overall program, and will be working with participants to select possible themes or topics for a future workshop series.
