Telling the Full Story pt.1

One vision I have for heritage in Edmonton is more inclusive and appropriate historic interpretation of the diverse peoples and experiences of Edmonton. I hope to see more panels, plaques, and interpretative installations to help share our history, create valuable and meaningful public spaces, and tell the full story of our city. The panels tagged here leave a lot to be desired. I believe we can do better in bringing the community together to collect and tell these stories, and in designing relevant and engaging public resources to learn about the history of our city. Many installations like these aren't valued or relevant because the content is now viewed as problematic, presents an exclusive narrative, or the physical infrastructure is outdated or has been vandalized and damaged.
