Shared Perspectives: Driving Culture Through Place

3:45pm - 4:45pm

Creative Industries is often typically viewed through an urban lens, but rural areas have their own distinct sense of place and unique provenance which can form an integral part of how they present themselves to the world. Featuring businesses in Scotland and Nova Scotia, this fascinating session will explore the rich relationship between the creative industries and place, discuss how geography shapes and defines culture and how this creates meaning and value for communities and businesses. The session will be in Gaelic with translation available.

Seallaidhean Co-roinnte: Stiùireadh Cultar Tro Àite
15mh Ògmhios 2022

Thathar air a bhith gu h-àbhaisteach a’ coimhead air na gnìomhachasan cruthachail mar chulaidh-iongantais, ach tha am faireachdainn sònraichte fhèin de àite, bun-tùs agus dualchas air leth aig sgìrean dùthchail, as urrainn pàirt bhunaiteach a chruthachadh ’s a chleachdadh air mar a tha sgìre ga riochdachadh fhèin don t-saoghal. A’ nochdadh ghnothachasan ann an Alba agus Alba Nuadh, bidh an seisean làn-tarraingeach seo a’ rannsachadh a’ chàirdeis shaidhbhir eadar an cultar agus an t-àite, a’ deasbad mar a tha cruinn-eòlas a’ cumadh agus a’ mìneachadh cultar agus mar a tha seo a’ cruthachadh brìgh agus luach do choimhearsnachdan agus do ghnothachasan. Bidh an seisean ann an Gàidhlig le eadar-theangachadh mar-aon ri fhaotainn.
