About Creative Gros Morne
The Gros Morne National Park Region will be recognized as a national centre for culture and creativity, inspired by and reflecting the natural environment that will attract international attention.
Oral traditions, local cuisine, gardens, hiking trails, lobster festivals and an active fishery, festivals, readings, performances, exhibitions and other theatre, writing, music, visual arts and craft activities, museums, galleries, lighthouses, restored fishing premises and heritage buildings – all these and numerous other aspects of contemporary everyday life in the Gros Morne National Park region blend to create an authentic living culture looking forward but still grounded in its storied history and roots.
Gros Morne Cultural Blueprint
Recognizing this strong cultural base, the increase in cultural activity and the potential for considerably more, the Gros Morne Co-operating Association (GMCA) initiated consultation with stakeholders to develop a five-year Cultural Blueprint.
In July of 2012 the the first phase of implementation of the Gros Morne Cultural Blueprint (GMCB) began led by the GMCA, with funding and support from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), the Department of Innovation, Business and Rural Development (IBRD) and Parks Canada. An Implementation Committee to advise on the progress and direction of activity has been established and is comprised of regional cultural and tourism stakeholders, as well as representatives from ACOA, Parks Canada, Canadian Heritage and the Department of Tourism, Culture Industry and Innovation.
