SHIPYARDS TOURISM

How can we meaningfully engage the public in the new Shipyards development?

Department: School of Tourism Management
Course: Culture, Heritage & Arts Planning for Tourism (TOUR 227)
Instructor: Chris Carnovale
Staff contacts Jill Cameron and Magda Kwaterska (City of North Vancouver)

Students will develop a culture, heritage and/or arts project proposal for the newly developed Shipyards in North Vancouver. During the semester, the class will meet with some of the City staff responsible for animating the public space and they will be given a tour of the site. The research and ideation process will produce realistic project ideas that could inspire future engagement by the City of North Vancouver.

Field Trip

On October 31st 2019, students from the TOUR 227 class were given a tour of the new Shipyards development. The information shared by Magda Kwaterska (City of North Vancouver) and Terry Hood (North Vancouver Museum & Archives) will help inform their research and ideation around projects and events that could help bring the site to life.
