Living Heritage in Saskatchewan Sharing Series: “Beyond ‘Arts & Crafts’: The role of Contemporary Visual and Media Art Practices in conceptions of Living Heritage”

June 17, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Part of Living Heritage in Saskatchewan: A Sharing Series:

Every two weeks to the end of June, join us with your coffee or tea after your lunch to learn more about living heritage.
At a time when we are all experiencing new ways to work and interact in new and remote ways, the Humanities Research Institute (HRI) – University of Regina and the Living Heritage Research Cluster (which includes Heritage Saskatchewan) invite the community interested in Living Heritage in our province, as well as UofR students and faculty, to join us in a virtual conversation. Each session will take place through a Zoom conversation, with presentations on a project or a researcher discussing their work around this theme.


Objectives of this series: 

  • to better understand living heritage and come to a common understanding of what it can mean in Saskatchewan;
  • to encourage sharing ideas and knowledge;
  • to create awareness of projects and break down silos;
  • to create the potential for common projects and collaborations between researchers and community organizations.

Upcoming Sessions:

June 17, 1:30-2:30pm
