February 17 – 23, 2020
Heritage Week offers a chance to explore heritage across BC and Canada. In 2020 the theme is “2020 Vision: Bringing the Past into the Future”. Watch this page for details of events that celebrate the theme.
Heritage in all its forms has the power to bring people together and create a sense of belonging. Gathering places like community places, religious buildings, public squares and parks, and traditional sites, as well as cultural objects such as artifacts, memorabilia and family items are tangible touchstones with the past that connect us to history and can serve as a base for engaged communities. Intangible heritage, which includes languages, food, traditional rituals, music, dance, storytelling and more, is at the heart of family and community.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Heritage Week 2019! We’ve created a short video with some highlights from the week. Enjoy!
