Support Heritage Vancouver
What we do
Heritage Vancouver Society promotes an integrated view of heritage through public programming, commentary, and research. We apply this holistic view and promote its application in realizing engaged communities and a city that is layered thoughtfully with old, new, tangible and intangible qualities of place.
Our vision is for heritage to be a topic that permeates everyday conversation and is a fundamental public policy concern. People have deep relationships with the built, social, and natural environments around them. We need to manage change based on the underlying meaningful relationships that people have with those places.
Why it’s important
Heritage extends to almost every part of our lives and is concerned with our sense of identity, our aesthetic, social, and cultural needs, and our needs for healthy human interaction and connection to nature. Heritage is essential to creating places and communities for people to have a life rooted in diverse values and experiences.
