Over the past year, we have met with hundreds of people who told us heritage is the layering of stories that describe the uniqueness of a community’s past and present while informing the future.
The stories are found in buildings and artefacts, events and activities, traditions and practices, and people and places. The stories tell us about culture and identity, and place and environment.
This conference weaves together many of these themes and reflects on the values and visions we heard expressed during our travels around the province.
We will focus on the environmental benefits of built heritage conservation and the relationship between natural and built heritage conservation. We will look at the connections between archaeology and heritage, community and culture, and identity and interpretation.
We will look at new directions for building codes and explore new ideas for education. We will profile conservation of industrial heritage and highlight the importance of organizational readiness for reconciliation.
Heritage BC’s 2019 conference promises an exciting exploration of tangible and intangible heritage, from the built environment to cultural landscapes, and an in-depth interpretation of heritage through identity, culture and environment.
