Beyond Pender - Dim Sum, Dried Lizards and Empty Parking Lots: Understanding Cultural Landscapes with Bill Yuen, Executive Director of Heritage Vancouver Society
Date: Wednesday, May 16th, 2018 & Wednesday, July 4th, 2018 (repeat session)
Time: 7:00-8:30PM (Doors Open at 6:30PM)
Location: Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden
This session challenges traditional understandings of heritage that focus solely on architectural works and grand monuments. Contemporary understanding and practice is actually quite different and complex. Rather than focusing exclusively on physical objects, cultural landscapes focus on relationships between people and their environment and the interrelationships between tangible and intangible aspects of a place.
