This year, we will begin Friday evening at 7PM at the Franco American Centre, Crossland Hall. We’ll have time to reconnect then, enjoy some snacks, and sign up for presentations to take place the following day.
Also on Friday evening, filmmaker Tony Tremblay will join us from St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick, to screen his 2011 documentary film, Last Shift: The Story of a Mill Town. Tony will be on hand to take questions and lead a discussion following the film. You can find a clip from Last Shift online (http://www.stu.ca/lastshift/theProject.html) together with information about the film’s Dalhousie, New Brunswick community and industry.
Saturday morning we’ll begin at 9:30 with readings and presentations, and continue through the day with breaks for lunch (Noon) and supper (6:00).
For those who stay through Sunday, we’ll connect again at the Centre for breakfast (8:30AM) and a grand sendoff.

Parking at UMaine can sometimes be difficult. In order to avoid being ticketed, Friday arrivals can stop in to the Franco American Centre for a parking tag to hang from your rearview mirror. Weekend arrivals will not need a parking tag. If your vehicle happens to be ticketed by Campus Parking, you can give your ticket to us and we will take care of it.
