Wednesday, February 21st, 2018
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Please join us at the annual Heritage Summit! The Summit is intended to heighten heritage awareness in the community during Provincial Heritage Week (February 19 to 25), and highlight the work of the many local organizations interested in heritage issues.


Similar in format to past Summits, the event will be separated into two parts.


The first part will feature a presentation by Christine Meutzner (Nanaimo Community Archivist) on a little known story of Nanaimo’s past entitled “Time Travel: The Story of Big Frank”. In addition, Aimee Greenaway (Nanaimo Museum Curator) will provide a short presentation on the Museum’s latest featured exhibit “Extension BC – Divided in Solidarity”.


The remainder of the evening will be devoted to a roundtable discussion between culture and heritage organizations in attendance. Each group will have up to five minutes to share information about their mandate, recent accomplishments and upcoming projects. We hope the information shared will lead to greater co-ordination of effort amongst Nanaimo’s heritage-minded community. Groups are welcome to bring their own printed materials (brochures, etc.) for display and circulation to those in attendance.


If you, or a member of your organization would like to participate, please contact the Culture & Heritage Department at 250-755-4483 or cultureandheritage@nanaimo.ca to advise who from your organization will attend. Please provide this information prior to Friday, February 16, 2018.
