We are thrilled at the eager response to our upcoming Municipal Heritage Forum – the “ABC’s of Conservation,” taking place September 19-20th. That’s two weeks away! It’s going to be a great time of learning, inspiration, and fun. Registrations have been pouring in, and there are limited spaces remaining. Be sure to register online ASAP to reserve your place! The Forum is free of charge to all attendees.
Registration will close September 12th, or before if we reach our capacity.
There are also opportunities to participate in the Forum:
Show and Tell opportunities at the Forum
Has your community been involved in some really compelling heritage work this year? Is there a conservation project you are eager to share with others?
Back by popular demand, this year will feature our community “show and tell” sessions on both Thursday September 19th at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village and Friday September 20th at Knox Church in Old Strathcona. While we have already lined up some excellent updates from communities, we do have room for a few more, and would like to give you this opportunity to get involved and showcase your community’s good work.
“Show and tell” presentations should be:
- No more than 15 minutes long
- Accompanied a few slides or images – a picture’s worth a 1000 words!
- Can be about facing community heritage challenges, not just success stories;
- About a heritage project undertaken within the last year – it can be completed, or a work-in-progress.
If you are interested in “showing and telling,” your heritage happenings, contact Matthew Francis at firstname.lastname@example.org or (780) 438-8502, toll-free by first dialing 310-0000.
