Public Forum -THE FUTURE OF TORONTO’S PAST: STATE OF HERITAGE

Many thanks to the Federation of North Toronto Residents’ Associations FoNTRA for providing this information about this Toronto Heritage event:

Heritage Toronto wants to amplify your voice to the incoming City Council.

  • How can heritage be prioritized within an ever-growing city?
  • Which stories from our past need to be shared?
  • How can the city better preserve the things we care about, whether they’re cultural spaces or physical structures?
  • The creation of a Toronto Museum has been discussed for decades; is it time to make it happen?

 

We are asking you, Toronto: What is the future of our past?

Every election year, we take stock of the state of Toronto’s heritage. Through consultations, research and a city-wide survey, we compile and produce a report on how well the city is preserving and celebrating cultural, natural, and physical heritage.

Our 2015 report focused on governance, regulations, resource management and awareness, collections, and education. This year, we’re not only assessing how far we’ve come in those areas, but we’re specifically looking at how heritage connects with other aspects of society such as inclusivity and sustainability.

Join us at our first public forum on Toronto’s State of Heritage on Tuesday, July 31, at 6:00 pm, to be held at the newly restored The Great Hall (1087 Queen Street West). We will be drawing for door prizes for attendees! Register at: State of Heritage Public Forum

Now’s your chance to fill out our State of Heritage survey.

Share your thoughts and be entered to win a Heritage Toronto prize pack.

Survey closes August 3rd!
