Heritage Toronto Awards & William Kilbourn Memorial Lecture

Taking place on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at Koerner Hall in the Royal Conservatory of Music, this premier cultural event combines the annual William Kilbourn Memorial Lecture with an awards ceremony to celebrate outstanding contributions to the promotion and conservation of our city’s heritage. The evening begins with the exclusive Nominees’ Reception, and ends with a post-reception for all in attendance. Both receptions are catered by Daniel et Daniel.

Mary Ito will emcee the evening, and this year’s William Kilbourn Lecturer is Gail Dexter Lord – who, along with husband Barry Lord – is the Founder and President of Lord Cultural Resources, a Toronto-based cultural planning firm which has advised governments, museums, and other organizations around the world on innovative approaches to culture and heritage.

Following the lecture, the Heritage Toronto Awards recognize individuals and community organizations, as well as industry professionals and associations, for exceptional contributions in five categories:  Community Heritage, Media, Book, Short Publication and William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship.

The nominees’ reception begins at 6:00pm and the program begins at 7:30pm. Tickets start at $15. The Royal Conservatory of Music is located at 273 Bloor Street West in Toronto.
