The Yukon heritage community will gather this year in Dawson City during the week of October 20-24th. The week will feature a variety of events, workshops and activities of interest to those engaged in the protection, conservation and celebration of our rich and diverse heritage. In addition to sharing new and best practices, this gathering provides an opportunity to meet others actively involved in heritage conservation across the Territory.
Heritage practitioners face significant and varied challenges across the Territory. Every day, Yukoners are finding innovative, creative and practical solutions to these issues. This year’s Symposium is structured to encourage peer exchange on a number of topics and current issues of interest to the Yukon heritage community. By strengthening our community ties and drawing from best practices and lessons learned, the Yukon heritage community can work together to continue to inspire and share a passion for Yukon heritage.
The week will feature a variety of events and activities of interest to all members of the Yukon heritage community. These include:
- annual Museums Roundtable (organized by YG Museums Unit, open to all Museums Unit clients)
- Canadian Conservation Institute workshop on Archival Materials (organized by YG Museums Unit)
- annual Yukon Heritage Symposium (organized by YHMA)
- meetings of YHMA Committees
- special presentation by representative from Canadian Museum of History
