Simon Fraser University Centre for Scottish Studies – Gathering of the Scots event – December 7, 2013

A Round Table Discussion for a Renewed and Revitalized Scottish Community in Metro Vancouver

The SFU Centre for Scottish Studies is hosting a round table discussion with some of the prominent Scottish societies and associations in the Lower Mainland. The intent of this gathering is to map out a blueprint for how we can join together to reclaim our visibility and viability in this place we now call home.

We want to build a bigger, stronger and more vibrant Scottish community to promote Scottish culture, history, music, language, dance and art to the public at large.

How can we introduce more people to Scottish culture? How can we ensure that the passion for our heritage passes on to the next generation? This is an opportunity to discuss how we can unite to strengthen all our interests.

The Honourable John Fraser will be our moderator.

The event will be on Saturday, December 7th, 10am – noon, Fletcher Challenge Theatre, SFU Harbour Centre, 515 W. Hastings, Vancouver, BC.
