Sharing & Celebrating the Diversity of Cape Breton Island
diversitycapebreton.ca is an interactive, and growing, multimedia resource. It houses and presents research about the contributions of diverse groups to the social and cultural landscape of Cape Breton Island.
It is a digital archive for community partners to contribute and safekeep their documentary materials. And it is a technology-enriched learning space with interactive multimedia resources – exhibitions and learning resources of various kinds – for the public to explore.
Inception & Support
The portal is supported by the research office of Dr. Marcia Ostashewski, Canada Research Chair in Communities and Cultures at Cape Breton University. The portal is also facilitated by partnerships with community and heritage institutions and numerous individuals. The rich materials found on the site have been gathered together by a team of scholars, student and community research assistants, working with Dr. Ostashewski and her research office.
