National Trust for Canada (Virtual): Public Engagement and Community Outreach (Part 2)

January 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Historic places are 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 Trust is offering a series of webinars to introduce these concepts and address some of the unique challenges that historic places face.

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. 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.

In this webinar we will be going on a deeper dive with lessons learned, and informed next steps when it comes to community outreach, and relationship building with new audiences to historic places open to the public.

**If you have questions about this work that you would like addressed as part of the webinar please email by Jan 4, 2023.

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 is presented with Karen Carter, president and founder of Karen Carter and Associates Cultural Consulting- focused on building new community centered cultural organizations, projects and initiatives. She has over 25 years of experience working and volunteering in a range of arts, culture and heritage settings. She is the former Executive Director of Heritage Toronto, founding Executive Director of Myseum of Toronto and co-founder of Black Artists’ Network and Dialogue (BAND). Karen’s most recent project is as co-founder of The BIPOC Fellowship to help support the development of a more diverse cultural landscape in Canada.
