What is the Manitoba Heritage Summit?

A group of eight Manitoba Provincial Heritage Associations (PHAs) is organizing a “Heritage Summit” to discuss the state of heritage in Manitoba. What are the present opportunities and challenges in the heritage sector? How are heritage-related organizations preparing to address them?

What is “heritage”?

We embrace the broadest possible interpretation of this term as illustrated by the diversity of Provincial Heritage Agencies involved in organizing the Manitoba Heritage Summit. It includes such components as the conservation and restoration of built structures and natural spaces; the genealogy of families, communities, and groups; the collection and preservation of written and spoken information, and physical artifacts; the archaeological record; and the sharing of heritage stories, traditions, foods, and more. It engages and integrates people from many perspectives, including the general public, advocates, managers, and researchers.

Who can attend the Manitoba Heritage Summit?

The Manitoba Heritage Summit is open to everyone, both professional and amateur. Participation is especially encouraged by people connected with heritage in their community, including involvement with museums and archives, local historical societies, municipal heritage advisory committees, local and regional governments, and heritage advocacy groups.

The Summit will be held over one full day. The entire program will be livestreamed on the Internet to enable people to participate fully, regardless where they live.

Why should I (or my community or organization) attend the Manitoba Heritage Summit?

The anticipated benefits of the Manitoba Heritage Summit will be to:

  • Share information to the mutual benefit of all participants,
  • Provide a forum for discussion of the challenges and opportunities for heritage organizations in Manitoba,
  • Enable networking and better communication between all heritage groups, and forging of long-term relationships

What will it cost to attend the Manitoba Heritage Summit?

How does heritage preservation contribute to cultural diversity?

Manitoba is a multicultural province that benefits from people with diverse views, experiences, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Fostering awareness of the intrinsic heritage of a community leads inevitably to greater tolerance toward, and celebration of, all people.
