Heritage BC to host community consultation in Quesnel

The consultation is next Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Heritage BC will be hosting a community consultation in Quesnel on September 19, at the Quesnel Council Chambers from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Quesnel and District Museum and Archives is helping to facilitate the event, which is one if 20 roundtables which will be taking place across the province. Of that 20, several are taking place in north-central B.C.

According to a press release, the consultations are intended to “bring people together to share ideas, situations, challenges, successes, relationships, and aspirations related to heritage and other disciplines such as museums, archives, archaeology, and arts and culture.”

It’s been 10 years since Heritage B.C. last consulted the public in such a large way, and Paul Gravett, the executive director of Heritage BC, said in a press release that the scope of the project has been greatly expanded.

“Every community has its own unique story that is told through its heritage and history,” said Gravett.

“In profound and subtle ways, heritage has shaped B.C.’s communities to what we see today. The provincial round tables will help to shape strategic development and program delivery for years to come, ensuring heritage remains relevant, contributing to the future vitality of communities.”

The Quesnel and District Museum and Archives museum and heritage manager Elizabeth Hunter says that so far, she knows of about 17 people who have registered to attend the consultation and they make up a fairly good geographic and sector representation for the area.

For more information or to register for the consultation, email info@heritagebc.ca.
