Heritage interpretation in Atlantic Canada - Breakout session report

Back in September, a contingent of Newfoundland folklorists and cultural workers took part in the "Heritage interpretation in Atlantic Canada: Dialogues between theory and practice"intangible cultural heritage conference, at Cape Breton University in Sydney, NS. We did not get tattoos.

On the last day of the conference, there was a discussion on how best we might be able to promote Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in Atlantic Canada.

Two sessions ran simultaneously: one on Academic Research moderated by Chris McDonald, who asked the group to consider the question “What should be the future priorities for researchers in ICH?”; and one on Heritage and the Public Sector moderated by Ronald Labelle who asked the group to consider the question “How can museums and heritage centres contribute to the advancement of ICH?” At the end of the sessions, Dale Jarvis moderated a joint presentation of results, and compiled a report and list of future actions.

That report is available here:
