Hosting Sylvie Blangy

23 07 2009

We were extremely proud and humble to have hosted our friend and ecotourism academic/consultant, Sylvie Blangy earlier this month.  Sylvie has visted and worked with our community twice before and we were very enthusiastic to have her back.  This time around, we worked with Sylvie on conducting a number of community engagement workshops on cultural rejuvenation, arts/crafts business development, youth programming, and tourism partnerships.  She also had a chance to see the most recent developments out at Washow Lodge.

Sylvie has passed on a number of skills to our tourism department at Moose Cree First Nation for us to start conducting our own community workshops.  The idea is to truly use Washow to benefit as many community members as possible.  In the coming months we will be hosting a number of community-focused workshops out at Washow Lodge and we will welcome artisans, Chief & Council, youth, elders, and the broader community.

To see more of Sylvie’s work, contacts, and partners please vist her website here.
