RFQ: Edmonton Heritage Experiences Survey Project

The Edmonton Heritage Council is seeking an external research and consulting provider for a report and research-based recommendations to provide baseline insights to inform development of future work.

Edmonton City as Museum Project (ECAMP) initially operated between 2013 to 2017 and was re-launched in 2019 as mandated by Connections & Exchanges (C&E)- the City of Edmonton’s ten-year plan to transform arts and heritage in Edmonton. In preparation for the development of ECAMP programming that addresses the actions laid out in C&E, an inventory of current & recent heritage experiences and in situ markers available in the Edmonton area is required. This inventory would include both digital and in-person heritage interpretive experiences.

Examples of digital heritage interpretive experiences include apps such as On This Spot and the Commonwealth Walkway. Examples of in-person heritage interpretive experiences include organized & self-guided tours, and interpretive signage & markers.

In addition to an inventory of Edmonton’s heritage programming, this project also involves an analysis of how similar heritage organizations manage or support heritage interpretive experiences offered in their community; what models can the EHC and ECAMP use as reference points as we develop operational plans to carry out Connections & Exchanges? What are the lessons that can be learned from other jurisdictions as we look ahead to what can and must be developed over the next ten years?

Proposals will be received until 4:00 pm (MDST) April 13, 2020. Proposals received after this time will not be considered.
