  • APT & National Trust Joint Conference 2020

    Sat., Oct. 3, - Wed., Oct. 7, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

    in 7 days

    The annual National Trust conference is Canada’s largest heritage learning and networking event. Held in a different part of Canada every year, this national conference brings together a wide-range of people keeping Canada’s heritage alive: from grassroots advocates, professionals and planners, to elected officials, policy makers, and students.

    Hindsight 2020: Conservation, Disruption, and the Future of Heritage

    HINDSIGHT 2020 will explore heritage conservation’s disruptive role in a 21st century defined by resource scarcity, climate change and sustainability. In an era seeking heroic solutions, historic preservation provides transformative ideas, highlighting the importance of adaptation, minimal intervention, reversibility and maintainability. While Edmonton is the research, refining, and manufacturing heart of the Canadian oil industry, it is also a hotbed of environmental innovation and activism. HINDSIGHT 2020 will be hosted by a vibrant historic city at the very forefront of the climate crisis, one wrestling with its petroleum legacy and the imperative to transition to a low-carbon future.

    Rather than postpone or cancel the upcoming joint conference, we are pleased to announce that we have begun planning virtual conference sessions, in parallel with some in-person events that would be held in Edmonton, if meetings become possible again by that time.

    • Identify common themes among PHAs relating to heritage and history in Manitoba
    • Identify present and future opportunities and challenges that will be beneficial for the delivery of heritage-related programs and the management of heritage resources around Manitoba,
    • Foster improved collaboration and communication between PHAs and smaller heritage facilities around the province, and
    • Prepare a White Paper on the state of heritage in Manitoba and its development over the next 10 to 20 years, toward a long-term vision for Manitoba’s 200th anniversary in 2070.

    Duckworth Centre

    400 Spence Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba

    The 2020 Red River Heritage Fair is CANCELLED!

    The Heritage Fair program encourages students to explore the history of our country in a dynamic and hands-on environment. Students use the medium of their choice to recount the stories of the people, events, familial events and key moments from Canadian history and present their research in a public exposition at their school.

    The best projects from schools are invited to showcase their work at the Red River Heritage Fair. The students present their research, respond to questions from judges, and discuss and share their project with fellow students, parents, teachers, and community members.

    But it is much more exciting than that; students participate in interactive workshops, join in a scavenger hunt, meet others students and share their history projects thus creating a fast-paced history learning day.

    Workshops are designed for students and provided by local museums, historical societies or organizations promoting Canadian history and heritage.
