The Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador invites you to attend “Adapting Heritage…Engage, Innovate, Rejuvenate!”

From October 25 – 28, 2017, in the heart of historic St. John’s, a forum, workshop and conference will explore the trends that are impacting our heritage.

Rapid demographic and social change, market forces, the influx of new cultural communities, technology and climate change are all having a transformative affect on our heritage – whether it be our historic places or our cultural traditions and practices. Individual heritage structures and even whole communities are losing their original purpose and need to find new uses and adapt to change or be at risk of disappearing. Traditional knowledge and cultural practices are at risk of fading away as an older generation passes on and the impacts of mass culture are felt. Preserving and safeguarding our rich cultural heritage requires new and innovative thinking and ways of doing things.

Travel Subsidy

For those driving or flying within Newfoundland and Labrador travel subsidies are available to individuals outside of the Avalon Peninsula. Car pooling is encouraged (we can help arrange this). If you wish to apply for a travel subsidy, please select your region. These will be paid after the conference upon the submission of a travel claim. Note: As subsidies are limited, these will be provided on a first come, first served basis until the travel fund is used up.

Post-Secondary Student Discount

Special ticket prices for post-secondary students. Must present student ID card at registration.
