TitleChanging Tides Conference. Day 3, Tape 2 (Changing tides : emerging directions for Newfoundland's future)
SummaryWorkshop group reports: Continuation of the report on Culture by Ken Pittman. Main points noted include: the impact of unemployment and the community environment on culture; need to be realistic and to avoid nostalgia and "souvenir culture". Comments from the floor: important to take a broad view of Newfoundland culture and to take a cautious approach to seeing culture as an economic resource.-- Technology and Resources Workshop: Points noted include: Megaprojects based on resource exploitation have not been successful in Newfoundland; appropriate technology would be low technology for the most part not requiring huge outlays of capital and benefiting people--e.g. peat harvesting, fish farming, wood chip production. Oil development is not the answer, nor are government projects; development of credit unions or other financial services would allow money to stay and be used productively in the province; entrepreneurship should be encouraged;develop links with Scandinavia. Comments by John Pinsent, Ivan Palmer, Ross Traverse, Pat Murray. -- Communications Workshop: Report by Charlie Callanan. Points include: Communications systems hold both promise and threat; empowerment through telecommunications; power of television and development of critical viewing skills should be stressed in education; need to produce local programs and alternative systems; portrayal of Newfoundland lifestyle in the media. Comments: Higgins and Len Jackson.
