In collaboration with small, ERA is proud to present Start Small: Placemaking & Cultural Economies a talk with Halifax-area cultural economic drivers moderated by Philip Evans, Founder of small and Principal at ERA Architects.
Join us for this free, public event taking place from 6-7pm, on May 24th at Arts Bar + Projects at 1873 Granville Street, Halifax.
Across Canada, communities are shaped by their unique cultural landscapes. Small-scale, place-based businesses and organizations are essential to this culture, and to the evolution and adaptation of these communities. small is an organization that works to support this evolution by bringing together cultural economic drivers; those visionary entrepreneurs, organizers and agitators who leverage the unique place-based cultural assets in their communities to build social, cultural and economic strength. From Inuvik to Bonavista, we’re hosting a series of events to talk about their careers, challenges, and the tools needed to succeed.
To kick-off ICOMOS Canada’s annual conference ‘Connection to Place’, we’re in Halifax asking:
How do we tell the stories of our communities?
What is the role of local cultural economies in these stories?
How do we support these cultural economies?
