Dale Jarvis, Executive Director of Heritage NL will present. Heritage NL is the recipient of the Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming. The Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming recognizes innovative programs or initiatives that encourage public engagement in Canadian history. Heritage NL received this national recognition for its Craft at Risk project. This project, intended to research, assess, and address the loss of traditional knowledge and craft, involved interactive training events with community members and craftspeople throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Dale will highlight the project and its legacy of intergenerational learning and the safeguarding of cultural knowledge and skills.
Dale holds a BSc in Anthropology/Archaeology from Trent University and a MA in Folklore from Memorial University. For many years he oversaw Heritage NL’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Office which helps communities to safeguard their traditional culture. Dale has contributed as a board member and volunteer to many local arts and heritage organizations. Former newspaper columnist, and author of several books, he is a tireless promoter of local traditions.
