Grand Pré World Heritage Nomination

The NCCL’s online discussion series continues this month with Christophe Rivet on Friday, Janary 22 at 3:00pm ET.

Heritage conservation archaeologist, policy analyst, planner, and project manager, Christophe Rivet has contributed to archaeological research projects in Canada, in France and Republic of Georgia, for more than fifteen years. Active both nationally and internationally with ICOMOS Canada since 1998, he was elected as its president in May 2015. Christophe is a Honorary Visiting Fellow, Department of Archaeology and Ancient History and holds a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Leicester and a Master’s degree in Conservation of built environment from Université de Montréal.

Christophe’s presentation draws from his work as Project Manager for the nomination in 2012 of the Landscape of Grand Pré to the World Heritage List. It will deal more specifically with the different layers of values attributed to this place by the communities that have inhabited it, and the manner in which these were negotiated through the nomination process. The presentation will be given in English and followed by a bilingual discussion.

All you need to join the session is a laptop computer or hand-held device and a good WiFi connection. Due to video capacity the sessions are limited to 20 persons (or computers). Please email canada@icomos.org by January 21st to register for this session.


Notre série de discussions vidéo se poursuit ce mois-ci avec une présentation de Christophe Rivet, le vendredi 22 janvier à 15:00 HAE.

Archéologue, analyste de politique, planificateur, et chef de projets depuis plus de quinze années, Christophe Rivet a contribué à des projets de recherche archéologique au Canada, en France et en République de Géorgie. Actif au sein d’ICOMOS Canada depuis 1998, il en a été élu le president en mai 2015. Il détient un Honorary Visiting Fellow, Department of Archaeology and Ancient History et un Doctorat en archéologie de l'Université de Leicester ainsi qu’une maîtrise en Conservation de l’envi- ronnement bâti de l'Université de Montréal.

La présentation de Christophe s’inspire de son travail en tant que chef de projet pour la nomination en 2012 du Paysage de Grand-Pré à la Liste du patrimoine mondial. Il se penchera sur les différentes valeurs attribuées à ce lieu par les communautés qui y sont associées, et la manière dont elles ont été négociées dans le cadre du processus de nomination. La presentation sera donnée en anglais et suivie d’une discussion bilingue.

Pour y participer, il vous faudra un ordinateur ou autre appareil portatif permettant un accès continu et stable à l'internet ainsi qu’une bonne connexion WiFi.

Viewing the Landscape: NCCL Video Discussion #3

The online discussion series continues this month with Julian Smith on Friday, December 18 at 3:00pm ET.

Julian Smith is a noted architect, scholar, conservator and educator. His career has included serving as Chief Architect for Canada's National Historic Sites program, a private architectural practice working on culturally significant places in Canada and around the world, and most recently as Executive Director of Willowbank and President of ICOMOS Canada. He has made, and continues to make, a profound contribution to the field of heritage conservation on the theory and practice of cultural landscapes.

Julian’s presentation ‘Viewing the Landscape’ is inspired by his recent travels to Australia, India and China where his discussions with ICOMOS members and participation in UNESCO meetings has suggested to him that it is the way we view the landscape that is the beginning of giving it cultural meaning.

Beginning with Julian’s session, the online discussion series moves to a set time of 3:00pm ET the third Friday of every month. Please email secretariat@icomos.canada.org at least one day in advance to pre-register for a session.
