Heritage exists in the broad spectrum between the tangible and intangible. It is our places for work, living, loving, seeing, and remembering. And it is our spaces for meeting, sharing, understanding, listening, and learning.
Heritage describes the relationships of the physical and conceptual, of land and people, of communities and cultures, and of environments and traditions. We conserve sites, preserve artifacts, build communities, capture stories, map names, fight climate change, preserve land, and protect environments.
At our 2020 conference, we explore all the ways that heritage creates places and spaces to transform our lives, societies, and environments.
Heritage BC is now accepting proposals for speakers and presentations for the 2020 Heritage BC conference.
Heritage describes the relationships of the physical and conceptual, of land and people, of communities and cultures, and of environments and traditions. We conserve sites, preserve artefacts, build communities, capture stories, map names, fight climate change, preserve land, and protect environments.
We are interested in proposals that connect to our broad theme of place and space and that specifically explore best practices and innovations of conservation, environment interpretation and protection, social and cultural cohesion, and climate change action.
We are also interested in proposals that explore the breadth of the heritage sector including consultants, builders, engineers, planners, property managers, archaeologists, anthropologists, museologists, archivists, and educators.
Proposals are required to be:
Presentations should also be inclusive, so that the conference reflects and respects a diversity of experiences, backgrounds, and cultures. Emphasis will be given to those proposals that include panels of two or more individuals.
Presenters have a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experience with professionals, volunteers and politicians. Presenters will receive a special discounted registration rate when registering prior to the early-bird deadline. Presenters are responsible for their own transportation, accommodation, and meals. Speaker fees and/or honorariums are not provided. Further details to follow.
