Frontline: The Future of Heritage Call for Applicants

April 1st, 2015 - April 1st, 2015

Creative heritage conservation has the power to connect us to our past while ensuring a more socially sustainable future.
Still, Winnipeg continues to neglect the incredible potential of its built heritage. What needs to change for progressive heritage conservation to flourish in Winnipeg?

The Call:
Storefront Manitoba and Heritage Winnipeg open call to submit a proposal for a policy, practice, project, or any other idea that could significantly shift the way heritage is conserved in the city. Each one page proposal should outline how the concept will be developed in a compelling fifteen minute presentation. A diverse range of entries will be chosen based on the creativity and feasibility of the idea and the proposed presentation.

How can we make community-focused heritage conservation a priority for developers? How can we communicate the potential of vacant buildings? What heritage projects would set a precedent for more innovative conservation in the city?

All individuals engaged with the city of Winnipeg's Design Community including: architects, landscape architects, planners, developers, and designers.

Deadline/Schedule: 1 page submissions emailed to info@storefrontmb.ca by April 1, 2015; Selections determined April 8, 2015.

Frontlines: The Future of Heritage Event The Winnipeg Free Press News Cafe May 30th 7-9pm - Selected applicants will present their ideas! Presentations will be followed by a dynamic panel discussion on forward-thinking heritage conservation in Winnipeg.

Questions: Please send questions and feedback to: info@storefrontmb.ca
