1. Heritage Regions Workshop | February 17, 2015

9am-4pm Tuesday, February 17th, 2015 | Old Fire Hall 1105 Front Street, Whitehorse

How can heritage resources contribute to community revitalization and economic development?

YHMA is coordinating a Heritage Regions workshop to complement this year’s Heritage Day theme, Main Streets: At the Heart of the Community. This workshop will give participants an overview of the Heritage Regions program which provides an integrated approach to a region’s economy and culture and leverages the resources of multiple communities within it, with an emphasis on tourism. The workshop will be led by Jim Mountain, Regeneration Program Director with the Heritage Canada National Trust.

Participants will explore a variety of topics including land-based heritage resource management, identifying community heritage values and assets, and the contribution of heritage buildings and historic sites in healthy communities. The workshop will share examples and best practices on how to manage, promote and preserve local heritage resources as well as how to begin a community-led initiative.

YHMA acknowledges the support of YG's Historic Sites Unit and Heritage Canada the National Trust for this workshop.

Who should attend?

Community advocates for the preservation and promotion of local and regional history. This can include historical societies, First Nation heritage officers, municipalities, museums and heritage advocates. Members of the tourism community and others interested in place-based cultural tourism are also welcome to attend.

Participants are also invited to attend the Yukon Heritage Awards, taking place 6-8pm, Monday, February 16th at the Yukon Archives. More information on this special event can be found here.
