She aims to include as many cultures as possible while celebrating their differences and similarities. Jellyn has also become active as a Regina Open Door Society Peer Leader, where she helps newcomers and immigrants to settle and integrate into Canadian life.
Ken’s presentation will focus on the importance of built attractions such as museums and galleries in telling Saskatchewan’s stories. He will also discuss trends in the tourism industry and how they relate to these attractions, and on how museums and galleries can leverage Saskatchewan’s tourism brand.
