City Celebrates Heritage Week with Annual Heritage Summit on February 21

On Wednesday February 21, 2018, the City of Nanaimo will host a Heritage Summit at the Nanaimo Museum from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The purpose of the summit is to heighten heritage awareness in the community during Provincial Heritage Week (February 19-25), as well as to network with other 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.

If you or a member of your organization would like to participate, please contact the Community and Cultural Planning Section at 250-755-4483 or cultureandheritage@nanaimo.ca.
