Indigenous Initiatives at EHC
It would be an understatement to say that the world has changed considerably in the year since EHC hosted the symposium Reconciliation and Resurgence: Heritage Practice in Post-TRC Edmonton on March 3-4, 2020. Read our recent blog post for a look at how this symposium has continued to inform our thinking and programming, including the introduction of a new Indigenous Initiatives program. We have recently launched the new FIRE (Funding Indigenous Resurgence in Edmonton) initiative as a direct result of learnings from this symposium, as well as the new monthly e-newsletter The Beacon.
Applications are currently open for the HCIP (Heritage Community Investment Program) streams Research & Planning and Project Accelerator (deadlines: June 4) as well as Change Capital and Career Development (open throughout 2021 via rolling intake). Learn about some of the heritage work we’re helping fund in this new announcement.
