Heritage BC & BCMA


Lekwungen Territory | Victoria, BC 
November 2 – 4


We are thrilled to welcome you back to our first in-person conference since 2019!

This conference will take place in person with a focus on live engagement and interaction between delegates, speakers and facilitators. We are planning to record and/or live-stream the learning sessions in plenary and make them available to members on our website. The workshops and social events will not be recorded.

Territory Acknowledgement

The BC Museums Association and Heritage BC Joint Conference will be held on the traditional, unceded lands of the Lekwungen peoples (Songhees and Xwsepsum Nations), on the lands of the T’Sou-ke First Nation in Sooke and on the territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ People in Sidney/SET,TINES. We respect past, present, and future Indigenous stewards and recognize that we are uninvited guests on these territories. As a reflection of the provincial scope of our membership and organization, we recognize that our affiliates occupy the ceded, unceded, and sovereign territories of Nations across what is referred to as British Columbia.


Key Locations

Our conference will take place in person in Victoria over several days. Learning sessions, social events, workshops and evening events will be hosted by local venue partners from the cultural heritage sector. We are pleased to partner with the Royal BC Museum, the Maritime Museum of BCCarr House, the Bateman GalleryChinese Canadian Museum, UVic Legacy Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and Craigdarroch Castle who will welcome you into their spaces.
