Tonight is the first board meeting for Dìleab: The Association for Intergenerational Language Transmission in Nova Scotia. This organization is spear-headed by Dr. Emily McEwan-Fujita, who has asked me to sit on the board primarily as a technical advisor and web site developer. This is an exciting opportunity for me and for Triskele Media, because it means that I have the opportunity to integrate more fully into the Gaelic community here, and my business has the opportunity to work with Gaelic organizations.
Later this month, Dìleab will be co-sponsoring a lecture by Dr. Leanne Hinton entitled, 'Bringing the Language Home: Language Revitalization in the Family', which will coincide with Dr. Hinton's visit to Nova Scotia. If you're local, I hope you'll come.
I'll post more on this as time passes, and I have more to tell.
