Join us on November 30 for a multi-perspective community discussion about heritage and storytelling, facilitated by a panel of esteemed heritage professionals and guided by an outstanding group of emerging historians.

Our city’s heritage is an ever-evolving constellation of stories. In recent years, the heritage sector has shared many of them, but there remains much important and challenging work to be done. During an evening of listening, learning, and sharing, hear firsthand about the heritage landscape from prominent leaders and aspiring professionals, and collaborate with your fellow Torontonians to share and examine the stories that matter most to you and haven’t been told enough.

Insights from this event will be incorporated into Heritage Toronto’s State of Heritage Report, a public policy document which aims to advise the City of Toronto on pressing heritage matters and inform Torontonians of the current state of heritage in their city.

Pre-registration is required. Please register below to reserve your spot.
