Innovative leisure practices: Cases as conduits between theory and practice
It is the honour of the World Leisure Centre of Excellence at Vancouver Island University to share the fourth volume of case studies that comprise the Innovative Leisure Practices series. As with previous volumes in the series, the intent is to share examples of unique and innovative practice in leisure, and to encourage discussion around these varied examples. The cases presented herein are eclectic in nature, and represent a very diverse set of important interests, communities, and practices.
