Heritage Regina Kicks Off the New Year with New Branding and Lecture Series
Heritage Regina will undergo a facelift in 2019 as the organization ushers in a fresh new visual identity and strategic plan. The change in branding will reflect a vibrant new energy within Heritage Regina, and a renewed commitment to telling the stories of Regina’s history. The new look will include an updated logo, colour scheme, and a new website.
“This is an exciting time for our organization and I am excited about sharing our vision and plans through our refreshed brand”, said Heritage Regina’s president, Jackie Schmidt. “In addition to our new look is our continued commitment to work with our many partners and support those that are also working to preserve our valuable heritage.”
In addition to the new Heritage Regina branding, the organization also announced the launch of its Winter Lecture Series to be held at the Artesian on 13th Avenue. This five-lecture series will feature expert presenters who will dive deep into prominent facets of Regina’s history.
The Series opens on Jan. 28 with the first lecture The Band Played On, which was developed in partnership with the Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO). The evening will include performances from Regina Symphony Chamber Players and a visit from RSO conductor Gordon Gerrard.
“In this the 110th anniversary season of the RSO we’ve come across an incredible amount of historical information that we didn’t know before,” said Dave Hedlund, Coordinator of the RSO’s 110th Anniversary Project. “It’s going to be very entertaining for people.”
The Band Played On is one of five unique events which will cover topics ranging from the history of Regina’s airports to famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Anyone with an interest in learning more about Regina’s captivating history is encouraged to attend.
Founded in 1977, Heritage Regina plays an important role in conservation, advocacy and education in honouring Regina’s cultural heritage. The organization offers a growing number of events and programs for the public including a summer walking tour series. Heritage Regina is sponsored by City of Regina and the Civic Museum of Regina.
