National Trust for Canada (Virtual): Black History in a Modern Cityscape: Geocaching

August 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
  • This event has passed.


Historic Places Days is an opportunity to share the places that matter to us, but we know that place-based history is often limited by the physical remnants of communities and settlements, most of which are conserved because of their role in telling a dominant, colonial narrative. This year our aim is to look beyond the established interpretations, find new ways to tell stories of places that matter. This summer the National Trust is supporting a Geocaching initiative with the City of Fredericton and the Black Loyalist Heritage Society to tell invisible stories of the Maritimes’ founding black communities.

Join the National Trust and Graham Nickerson (City of Fredericton) for a webinar on telling invisible stories with Geocaching. Learn more about Black history in Atlantic Canada, and how to share place based history that has been erased.
