Heritage Energized Oct. 22-24, 2015! – Save the Dates

Which of you RETROactive readers out there doesn’t love the annual Municipal Heritage Forum? What started in 2007 as a small “Summit for Stakeholders,” has grown into something which has brought Alberta’s heritage community together, building connections and raising the bar. We have received lots of positive feedback on the Forum over the years, and – we have to be honest – it’s also a lot of fun to put on!

Well, this year, as we announced at the Forum in Lacombe that the 2015 event would have a whole different spin, a whole new energy – Heritage Energized! 


Mark your calendars now – October 22-24th – we are linking up our already dynamic Forum with the premier, Canada-wide heritage conservation conversation. We’ll converge in Calgary, one of Canada’s most energetic cities, for a few days of exploration, engagement, and inspiration.

At the 2014 Lacombe Forum, Fred Bradley, Chair of the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, announced that the Foundation would be assisting 120 Albertans – including municipal heritage advisory boards, Main Street communities, students, and others – to attend the Heritage Energized through sponsored registrations. Henry Maisonneuve, Alberta Governor of Heritage Canada the National Trust, thanked the Foundation for their strategic partnership in this way, stating that he looked forward to a strong contingent of Albertans participating. Stay tuned to RETROactive for additional information on how you may be eligible for one of these spaces.

  • Dear Michael and Others,

    Please do count us in – we are looking forward to this wonderful event!

    By the way: Good News.

    Jane just got funding to participate in the Oral Histories-Film/Technology training session at University of Cambridge, together with applied practice in Oral History documentation for the Centennial of the Department of Anthropology and Archaeolgy, University of Cambridge.

    The idea is that she will contribute to Oral History knowledge/skills/gathering in Battle River region, Alberta.

      Congratulations to you Jane, that is a wonderful opportunity and will be a fantastic contribution to the Battle River region’s heritage. All the best to you at Cambridge!
