NEW! Heritage Basics
Tuesday November 10, 2015 at 10:00am/ 7:00pm
For individuals or groups new to heritage conservation or those that want to incorporate new legislative tools or values-based management into existing heritage programs, this is the webinar version of Heritage BC's popular workshop. Great for heritage society members, planners, elected officials, community heritage commissions, heritage property owners, the business and tourism community and the general public. This webinar introduces values centred heritage conservation and benefits (social, environmental, economic) to help identify heritage values and guide decision-making.
Writing Statements of Significance
Tuesday November 17, 2015 at 10:00am/7:00pm
This webinar helps participants develop the necessary documentation for identified sites on a Community Heritage Register. As an essential component of historic place record documentation, the SOS functions as a key planning tool to inform decision-making in the heritage conservation process. It provides guidance to property owners, architects, developers and others who are making an intervention to an historic place. Gain an understanding of what an SOS is, how it can be used and what elements to include in a well-written document. This webinar is especially useful for those who are applying to the Heritage Legacy Fund, as an SOS for the chosen site is a compulsory element to the Heritage Conservation Program application.
NEW! Heritage Conservation, Sustainability and Climate Change
Tuesday November 24, 2015 at 10:00am/7:00pm
This webinar introduces the intersections between heritage conservation, sustainability, and climate change. Climate change may have potentially serious implications for the historic environment. Cultural heritage sites can be particularly sensitive to severe weather events and to changes in climate. How can we mitigate the adverse implications of climate change in heritage conservation, and integrate the best practices of sustainability into heritage conservation? This webinar will also examine some current programs being offered to assist with long-term sustainability in heritage conservation projects.
Webinars are only $25 for Heritage BC members and $35 for non-members.
