Happy New Year and Decade! A point in time when we can all claim we have 2020 vision, and hindsight!
However, with the significant natural and unnatural threats already upon us, we’ll also need 2020 foresight and fortitude to prevail in protecting our global heritage on so many fronts.
We can start by acting locally. Protect, support and advance our heritage: be it our multicultural communities, natural and built environments, biodiversity, attractions, artefacts, or our intangible cultural heritage.
Find out how You can get involved as we co-present this year’s Ottawa Heritage Day Ceremony and Exhibitor Showcase, Feb. 18th at City Hall, fittingly with the theme 2020 Vision: Bringing the Past into the Future. Please print, post and email the event invitation and poster to your networks!
And if you aren’t one already, become a valued Member of our Capital Heritage Connexion! Act now, as one of the benefits is the opportunity to be a Heritage Day exhibitor.
Another, is promotion of your own events and initiatives through our online calendar and social media throughout the year.
