Time: 1:00 to 3:00 pm
Where: Fraser River Discovery Centre
Cost: Free with admission to galleries

Join us for a presentation and talk by Peter Hall.

Waterfront lands along many great world rivers, including the Fraser River, and are being redeveloped. Industrial activities are being replaced by residential and recreational uses. How can we ensure that riverfronts remain diverse and inclusive places? What principles can guide planning and redevelopment of waterfronts in river port cities and communities? Peter Hall will talk about the port cities around the world that he studies, and the inspiration he draws from his home of New Westminster.

The Fraser River is a living working river, and in anticipation of the Working River exhibition coming to the Fraser River Discovery Centre in September 2017, we welcome Peter Hall to help us understand the work of the river before our modern demands. Faces of the Fraser is an opportunity for the community to engage with knowledgeable, related professionals and community members who want to share their experiences. If you or someone you know would like to present at Faces of the Fraser, please contact jepp@fraserriverdiscovery.org.

This session includes a 60-minute presentation by Peter Hall, and a Q&A session with light refreshments. Event attendance is free with admission to the galleries, and payment can be made on the day. Admission is 50% off for the month of October but pre-registration is appreciated.
