Heritage as an Engine of Economic Growth - Cavan Workshop
Date: Friday, 21st September 2012
Time: 9:00am – 1:30pm
Location: Cavan County Museum, Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan.
The Heritage Council is delighted to announce that the next event in this highly successful series will take place in Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan. The 'Heritage as an Engine' workshop series is generating an increased awareness of the opportunities for enterprise and business development based on Ireland's unique local heritage. The event will be of interest to heritage practitioners, business people, entrepreneurs and community representatives.
The workshop will explore the potential of the heritage sector and opportunities throughout the county. Conor Newman, Chairperson of The Heritage Council, and Ann Marie Ward, Cavan County Heritage Officer, will open the proceedings with a discussion of the economic potential of the heritage sector in general, and importance of the recorded heritage of the county and achievements to date.
The programme of enterprise speakers has been specially selected to showcase the diversity and vibrancy of Cavan's unique heritage sector. The Marble Arch Caves Geo-Park and Green Bee Education are both enterprises which deal with our natural heritage either through its sustainable management or as an education tool. The Cavan Genealogical Research Centre and Irish Arms tap into the potential of our cultural heritage to create jobs and revenue. Various business support agencies will be in attendance to answer your questions and queries.
The workshop is designed to foster business networks and develop sustainable enterprise opportunities locally and nationally. It is hoped that the county workshops will support the sector's continued development and reinvigoration.
The event is free but places are limited and therefore booking is essential.
