Come to Calgary, and leave energized! Heritage is an energy producer that infuses Canadian communities with cultural and economic vitality, sparks new investment, and grounds us with a strong sense of place. The National Trust Conference 2015 will build on case studies from Calgary and across Canada to explore how heritage energy can turn places around, empower people, and create opportunities.
Calgary is more than cowboys and oil barons. It’s a dynamic city that has seized upon its heritage as a key building block for the future and become a fascinating laboratory for managing change under pressure. Come to Calgary this fall and experience thriving historic neighbourhoods like Inglewood and the Beltline; see exciting examples of adaptive reuse and community revitalization; and explore its wealth of early 20th-century and Mid-Century Modern architecture.
Taking place from October 22-24, 2015 at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel, the annual National Trust Conference is Canada’s largest event for professionals, practitioners, academics and volunteers engaged in regenerating and saving our heritage places. This is your opportunity to meet the 400-plus participants from across Canada, and to get to know heritage industry leaders at the exhibitor hall.
Amplify your conference experience through the broadest range of workshops ever mounted at the conference. Take the Heritage Real Estate course and think like a developer. Build your technical insights through workshops on wood or brick conservation. Strengthen your organization through fundraising or leadership workshops. Continuing education credits for planners and architects will be announced later this summer.
An inspiring slate of keynote speakers will introduce you to cutting-edge heritage from around Alberta and the globe: from heritage thinkers and developers to internationally acclaimed fiction writers. Indigenous cultural heritage will have a strong presence throughout the conference, including the groundbreaking pre-conference event, Moh-Kins-Tsis | Calgary Indigenous Heritage Roundtable.
