Newfoundland Northumberland Learning Connection

NLC's Spring 2019 Program

MARCH 28 - MAY 3, 2019

Newfoundland: The Damnedest Hullabaloo

The Provocative History, Iconoclastic Politicians and Irrepressible Music and Humour

Newfoundland & Labrador, our youngest province, is old before its time.  Its geography is harsh; its history cruel; its leaders outrageous.
But Newfoundlanders are survivors. They are brazen, their humor is wicked, they are story tellers and above all,  they are always true to themselves.
"We have grown up in such an atmosphere of struggle, of adversity, of mean times that we are never surprised." Joey Smallwood

The program wraps up on May 3 with a traditional Kitchen Party featuring musicians Christina Smith & Jean Hewson and storyteller Dave Paddon who joins us courtesy of his colleagues at Adventure Canada.

The Smallwood Era: Progress and Modern Architecture: From 1949 to 1972, Newfoundland Premier Joey Smallwood often used modern architecture to demonstrate the progress of "his" province. The innovative work of architects in the years following Confederation, and the curious atmosphere of life under a leader who controlled everything and everyone.
