The City of Mississauga Culture and Museums teams are partnering with Heritage Mississauga to present a time capsule-themed Heritage Week campaign from February 20 to 26, shared on all three of the team’s social media channels (see event location for handles). Throughout the week, social posts will be deployed to encourage people to explore the heritage and historical locations in Mississauga. The time capsule approach will be applied to the date of posting wherein, from Monday to Sunday, a chronological order from the past (as early as 1820) to the present day will coordinate with the type of program or artifact available at that location. The type of content will vary, but a primary shared category of content connects with the BIPOC community (Black, Indigenous and people of colour), specifically activations for Black History Month. In addition to the social postings, some of the locations will also be added to a GooseChase scavenger hunt, for locals to visit the sites, collect points on the app and learn more.
