National Trust for Canada (Virtual): Building Community Through Diversifying Partners and Audience Representation (Part 1)
December 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Heritage leaders and historic places are increasingly recognizing the imperative to build relationships, reach new audiences and make space for narratives that tell a more inclusive story of Canada. It can be difficult to know where to start this process, and the National Trust is offering a series of webinars to introduce these concepts and address some of the unique challenges that historic places face in Canada.
These webinars will offer an informed exploration of diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism in historic places and equip participants to transform their storytelling going forward with confidence. We will identify potential barriers to more inclusive ways of storytelling, and provide opportunities for intercultural knowledge sharing and exchange, to identify best practices in telling more diverse stories.
This webinar will be available as part of our “Diversity and Inclusion in Historic Places Resource Kit” for Historic Places Days 2023, and is made possible with support from the Department of Canadian Heritage.
This webinar series will be presented with Karen Carter.
