The Heritage Day Workshop, held annually in February, explores a different aspect of the heritage of the Grand River watershed. The Heritage Working Group helps organize the workshop in conjunction with municipalities and other agencies. This year’s event is hosted by the Heritage Working Group in partnership with the City of Waterloo.

The day features a variety of speakers on topics including: leveraging local assets to grow cultural economies; cultural heritage landscape studies; film and built heritage assets; and the real cost of heritage renovations. A keynote presentation by Greg McMaster will provide insight into the finding and preparing of locations for filming. McMaster has worked as a location manager for numerous film and television productions, including Murdoch Mysteries and Frankie Drake.

This year’s event will wrap up with an exciting PechaKucha-style session showcasing exciting ideas and innovations in heritage.

Tickets cost $10 per person (includes lunch and parking) and can be purchased here.
