Heritage roundtable coming to Fort St. John in September

The heritage, arts, and cultural sectors of Northeast B.C. will be part of an expansive project in exploring the influences and practices of heritage to understand their values and place in the context of community life.

The Northern Trails Heritage Society is partnering with the Heritage Branch and Heritage BC to present one of 20 provincial roundtables on Friday, September 21, at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The community consultations will bring people together to share ideas, situations, challenges, successes, relationships, and aspirations related to heritage and other disciplines such as museums, archives, archaeology, and arts and culture.

The meetings will aim to include and acknowledge all voices, providing opportunities for community members to bring personal, local, and regional perspectives to this important provincial initiative.

The consultations will include a broad and diverse participation of people working and volunteering in the heritage, museums, and archives sectors, plus archaeologists, local planners, elected officials, cultural workers, and the general public. A special effort will be made to include First Nations.

All Northeast B.C. museums, municipal and regional councils, historical societies, arts councils, indigenous and ethnic organizations, Chambers of Commerce, and other planning groups are invited to attend.

There is no fee to register. Contact Sue Popesku at the Norther Trails Heritage Society at spopesku@shaw.ca or 250-785-6214.
