Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland are getting excited to welcome delegates to the BCHF annual conference this June.
The theme of this conference is, ‘Who is Taking Care of History?’.
“It will be an ideal opportunity for B.C.’s historical organizations to tour sites in the Comox Valley, collaborate on best practices, and build strength to care for the diverse history of our province into the future,” said BCHF president Jane Watt.
The 2019 conference highlights include a presentation from Daryl Hatton, a leading Canadian expert on crowdfunding for the non-profit sector.
Karen Aird from the First Nations Cultural Council will share new strategies to conserve Indigenous heritage in her presentation, Not Just Stones & Beads.
Paul Gravett, executive director of Heritage BC, will share the findings from the recent series of provincial roundtables inquiring into the state of heritage in all corners of the province.
David Leverton, executive director of the Maritime Museum of B.C., will make a case to transform the Victoria-based museum into a national institution.
