RBCM@Outside Dark Heritage

NEW DAY AND TIME!  Join host Liz Crocker and University of Victoria adjunct associate professor Alastair Kerr for a virtual exploration of Victoria’s dark history through the built heritage that remains. No place, object or practice is inherently valuable. Values are systems of belief created by humans and assigned to places. We must ask for whom is it valuable? When places are valued differently there is bound to disagreement and conflict. Places, objects and practices may be valued one way by dominant colonial settlers, another way by other settler groups and another way again by Indigenous peoples. We’ll look at some buildings and places in Victoria that exemplify these conflicts and questions.
