“PlaceMaking: Where Arts and Heritage Collide”
May 5-7, 2016
Granville Island, Vancouver, BC
Deadline for Submission: February 15, 2016

Two provincial organizations, one giant conference, all taking place on Vancouver’s Granville Island. Granville Island’s unique industrial history and successful transformation into a vibrant arts community and tourist attraction make it an inspirational setting for this collaborative conference.
This year, from May 5-7, 2016, Heritage BC (www.heritagebc.ca) and ArtsBC (www.artsbc.org) are partnering to host an exciting and innovative conference that will explore the role of the arts and heritage in forming and sustaining ‘places’.

This conference is a great opportunity to join ArtsBC’s diverse membership of galleries, theatre and dance companies, local governments and other arts service organizations, and individual artists together with members and supporters of Heritage BC, including architects, heritage commissions and societies, museum professionals, planners, archivists, consultants, government employees, First Nations organizations, tourism professionals, educators, students, politicians, realtors, heritage enthusiasts and advocates, for three days of interactive and hands on workshops, keynote speakers, tours, special events, member reports, and networking opportunities.

Proposals for sessions that will be eligible for professional development credits from the Architectural Institute of BC (AIBC) and the Planning Institute of BC (PIBC) are strongly encouraged.
