2020 Region Workshop: Reflect, Engage, Inspire!
Our workshop aims to celebrate interpretation – how we can reflect on our past, ways we can engage with our audiences through participatory dialogue, and the roles Interpreters have in inspiring change.
Brandon, our host city, has been nicknamed the "Wheat City" in honor of its rich agricultural heritage and reputation as a prosperous farming community. It is situated in the southwest corner of the province of Manitoba and is the second largest city in Manitoba. Brandon is the little city with the big heart, a progressive community with a quality of life that must be experienced to be appreciated.
Manitoba is coming into its own in recent years. Fueled by passion and pride for the heart of the continent, Friendly Manitobans are eager to showcase our province to the world. Our natural beauty, immersive culture and unique experiences makes us one of the best places in the world. Lonely Planet has named us one of the Top 10 regions in the world to visit this year - come see it for yourself in 2020, Manitoba’s 150th anniversary of becoming a province!
