Shaping Vancouver 2017:ReShaping Conversations on Heritage

Conversation #1: The Future of Heritage in Vancouver- What the New Thematic Framework Means for Our City

Admission is free; donations are much appreciated as we are volunteer based.

Under the Heritage Action Plan of 2015, development commenced on a new thematic framework in order to update the Vancouver Heritage Register so that it reflected newer approaches to heritage. This includes recognizing a broader range of heritage values beyond just the architectural. This work on the new framework is nearing completion and will change how we evaluate and recognize heritage in the city.

Heritage consultant Donald Luxton of Donald Luxton & Associates Inc., who is conducting the update, will introduce the new thematic framework and panelists will explore what the adoption of these broader heritage values may mean for communities, our definition and understanding of heritage, and the progression of heritage planning in Vancouver.
