Exploring Mountain Culture Forum

What does “mountain culture” really mean? How do residents understand and relate to this concept? Does living in the mountains have a significant impact on our lives? Is our mountain culture at risk?

The Teaching and Learning Institute and Rural Development Institute at Selkirk College have partnered with college instructors and school teachers across the region to explore this topic. Students from grade 4 to college have interviewed residents about their views, then built creative expressions on the meaning of mountain culture. 

You are invited to join our Mountain Culture Forum to learn about the results from hundreds of interviews, view the gallery of students’ creative expressions, and participate in a focus group discussion on the future of our mountain communities.
