WAM October 8-9 NAF Mike Clair & Deatra Walsh
Next week, the North Atlantic Forum gathers academics, practitioners, government officials and other people interested in the intersection of culture, place and identity, which they see at the heart of regional development.
The international conference is being convened by the Harris Centre for Regional Policy and Development at Memorial University. Mike Clair is the Associate Director of Public Policy at the centre, and Deatra Walsh, working on her post-doctorate degree at York University, will be presenting a talk on the panel “Authenticity in Cultural Expression.” Her paper is on Hey Rosetta.
I asked Mike why, as an interested observer of the cultural scene in the province, I should be excited about the conference.
