When it comes to development, who we are affects where we’re headed.

Held in historic St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, this international conference will explore how the strong cultural identity of remote rural communities, islands and coastal regions can be used to develop sustainable economic activity.

‘Culture, Place and Identity at the Heart of Regional Development’, will be an opportunity for the cultural, development, business and academic communities to come together to share experiences and insights.

From sustaining culture through tourism, to restructuring economies without destroying culture, to harnessing culture for economic benefit, the conference will examine global trends in tourism, technology and demographics, and will feature global best practices in cultural tourism and cultural industries.

So, come, experience performances and exhibitions from some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most exciting artists, connect with colleagues from around the world, and join us at the edge of North America.
