What is Vancouver’s Heritage?

Heritage Vancouver Society
Date of Event: 
Thursday, April 16, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (SFU Woodward's 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver)  

Admission: Free but registration recommended-


The evening’s discussion will be around what Vancouver’s heritage is and what heritage values ought to be recognized.  We then tie these values to a discussion of the Heritage Register, an inventory that identifies approximately 2,200 heritage sites and resources. The register is and has been a fundamental component of heritage conservation in our city but it needs to be updated.  The panelists will discuss how our existing register can be improved so that it reflects and recognizes a broad range of heritage values, beyond just the architectural.  A general discussion with the audience follows and at the end, everyone will be invited to submit feedback on the evening’s topic to the consultants leading the Heritage Action Plan.


This event is made possible by the generous support of SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement.
