Current Events

In collaboration with internationally recognized heritage consultant, Catherine C. Cole, the Edmonton Heritage Council is introducing an online workshop series, Wide Angle Lens: Empowering Community Heritage Practices. 

The workshops will take a deep dive into preparing and implementing successful heritage projects. The series includes five 90-minute sessions, offered one Thursday per month between November 2020 and March 2021, with afternoon and evening options available to accommodate various schedules. Session topics include:

  • Edmonton Stories – November 19 (2pm or 7pm)
  • 10 Steps in Project Planning – December 10 (2pm or 7pm)
  • Working ‘With’ and ‘In’ Communities – January 14 (2pm or 7pm)
  • Research – February 11 (2pm or 7pm)
  • The Final Product – March 11 (2pm or 7pm)

For detailed session descriptions, check out this post on the EHC blog. 

We are offering access to all five sessions, including assignments and feedback from Catherine Cole, for only $25. Alternatively, you can audit one or more sessions at no cost. Registration for both options is available through Eventbrite (full course and individual sessions). 

These workshops will provide valuable advice and guidance to support any stage of project implementation, whether you are new to heritage work, in the early stages of project planning, or preparing to share your final product. I hope that you can join us and encourage you to share this information with anyone who you think would benefit from this opportunity.
