Heritage Vancouver Walking Tour: The Pandemic-Era City and Beyond Heritage Vancouver Society Sep 5, 2021 : 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted how we live our everyday lives, how we connect with the people and places we care about, and how we think about and experience the city. What is the heritage of an event that has impacted our lives so profoundly? On this 2 hour tour around downtown Vancouver, we will be exploring the multilayered effects of the ongoing pandemic in the city and reflecting on some key questions: How will the 'new normal' be configured in the post-pandemic city? Will there be enduring changes to the way we work, travel, shop, gather, protest, celebrate, and memorialize? What will the changes to our streetscapes and built forms look like? Come take both a retrospective and look forward through these 'Covidian times' as we unpack various themes and spaces in the central city.

Information about the start location will be sent with a confirmation email.
