“Voicing Contested Histories” workshop

On November 22, 2017, take part in a one-day, province-wide workshop,┬á“Voicing Contested Histories,” to explore the the important role we as cultural heritage professionals play in giving voice to diverse perspectives on history.

After an introductory overview, you will participate in facilitated, small-group discussions inspired by panel presentations.

“Voicing Contested Histories” is presented by┬áthe BC Museums Association, Royal Roads University, the British Columbia Heritage Branch and Heritage BC.

The workshop is open to any and all cultural heritage professionals interested in supporting diversity, inclusion and reconciliation efforts around our province.
