Term: Fall 2019
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 were 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.
