Cities & Environment Unit (at Dalhousie University) presented the refined design concept to Potlotek Chief and Council on January 22, 2013. With schools cancelled in the region the team was not able to meet with students, but there will be an upcoming chance for students to see the updated design.
The Education Longhouse will be a community building that is built by the community. It will be a beautiful and unique building that expands education opportunities and brings people together in new ways to share knowledge, promote Mi'kmaq culture and celebrate community. The building will be a multi-use and flexible education facility with spaces for many kinds of learning. The building will include classrooms, a community gallery space to showcase local art, and space for cultural gathering.
Look out for announcements of upcoming meetings. Get involved! This is YOUR building - you can help make it a reality!
Here is a sneak peek at the building concept to date:
