BCHF introduces Inspiration Awards

Do you know an individual or organization working or volunteering in the history, heritage or cultural sector that has been a beacon of light during the challenging days of the pandemic in 2020?

Is there an organization you know that has pivoted and adapted, learning new technologies and pulling together for one another? Or, maybe you know of a historical society, cultural centre or museum that has temporary closed in order to safeguard its members, to think and to regroup. Is there a person working in heritage who you think has gone above and beyond?

The BCHF has created a new award category to recognize the good work individuals and organizations in the heritage field are doing and have done this past year. We are all adapting and working to get through the challenges of the pandemic together — BCHF would like to acknowledge this work.

We are seeking nominations for these awards, which we will present next June while our Virtual Conference is taking place. You can nominate by completing this online form, or by sending an email message with the nominee’s name and information to shannon@bchistory.ca.
