Alternative Crafts Promotion

Description 

Objective:

To explore and promote alternative craft opportunities on the Great Northern Peninsula

Background:

Currently, many crafts people on the Great Northern Peninsula do similar crafts. However, there are a number of interesting, unique craft opportunities that could be explored by people in the area. By focusing on these alternatives and marketing them in specific areas, each area is building a unique character, thus giving tourists a reason to visit each. Discussion is needed to explore alternative craft opportunities, how they could help communities, and how to market them.

Roles for Memorial University:

Organize a workshop that brings together crafts people on the Great Northern Peninsula to discus the opportunities for alternative crafts in their areas and how focusing on them would benefit their communities.

Create a marketing plan for these alternative crafts.
