Heritage Week is across BC and Canada from February 19th to 25th.
This years theme is “Heritage Stands the Test of Time” and will celebrate how heritage sites and buildings offer insight and education about our past and can be enjoyed and utilized by all generations.
Among the Heritage Week activities are a series of events honouring Vancouver’s historic legacy and offering a chance to explore and learn about the city’s special heritage spaces.
Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2305 West 7th Avenue) will be hosting one of these free events, Places That Matter: Community Celebration, on Wednesday, February 21st from 6:30pm – 9pm.
Celebrate the local, cultural and lesser known history of our city with a free evening of storytelling, community and refreshments. Local comedian Morgan Brayton will serve as MC introducing several speakers connected to memorable sites honoured through the Places That Matter program. There will be opportunities to share your own stories, explore community booths, and learn about the Places That Matter plaque project and the new Community History Resource website.
