Heritage BC Conference: The Culture of Heritage:
Place and Space
Chilliwack, May 7 through 9, 2020
Heritage exists in the broad spectrum between the tangible and intangible. It is our places for work, living, loving, seeing, and remembering. And it is our spaces for meeting, sharing, understanding, listening, and learning.
Heritage describes the relationships of the physical and conceptual, of land and people, of communities and cultures, and of environments and traditions. We conserve sites, preserve artifacts, build communities, capture stories, map names, fight climate change, preserve land, and protect environments.
At our 2020 conference, we explore all the ways that heritage creates places and spaces to transform our lives, societies, and environments.
