  • The Story

The Art of Knowledge.

From boat-building to berries, from knitting socks to mending nets, Towards an Encyclopedia of Local Knowledge vividly presents many of the rich, place-based knowings and doings of more than one hundred knowledge-holders from rural Newfoundland. With a singular artistic vision, renowned artist Pam Hall assisted by a host of local collaborators, engages in a stunning act of cultural celebration and preservation of rural knowledge. To find Newfoundland, Hall travels to the source - a place where tradition, knowledge, life, and art intertwine. These images and texts come together to reveal and revalue the local in a time when global mono-culture seems overwhelming.
