creating a future for our heritage
We are the community of common interest contributing to creating a future for our heritage and our heritage resources and exploring how we can increase the size of our community of common interest and the contribution of common enterprise to our creative interests
What we could do
We could invite our heritage community contributors to tell their stories about what they are doing, how they are contributing, and what interests, ideas, and initiatives they are pursuing to increase their contribution to our community interests and create connections with and for our community.
We could communicate opportunities for creative relationships, creative leadership, and creative community enterprise around ideas and enterprises which contribute to our community interests.
We could explore possibilities for increasing our contribution as a community by increasing our understanding of what contributes, what could contribute, and what opportunities and ideas we have to contribute.
We could increase our understanding of why we are, what we do, and what we contribute to our common interests as a community
We could explore the systems we currently have, the ideas other communities are pursuing, what we know about the value of our heritage, our common interests, and the opportunities and ideas we have for creative conversation around creative possibilities we could pursue as a community to protect, preserve, and increase the contribution of our heritage resources.
We could invite our community to explore and write stories of historic significance to our community which contribute to our appreciation, understanding, and interest in creating a future for our heritage.
We could keep our communities informed about opportunities to explore, experience, and learn about our heritage and our heritage resources and opportunities to contribute to preserving and increasing the contribution of our heritage to our community and our creative Vancouver communities.
We could inform and focus our community attention and creative energy on opportunities for creative conversation and creative community enterprise around creative possibilities and ideas which contribute to our community interests
We could imagine possibilities and explore opportunities and ideas for protecting, preserving, and increasing the contribution and value of our heritage resources with different use, better use, and new uses to increase their creative contribution to our community and community culture.
Making Room for Culture – Max Wyman
We could explore our past experiences in successfully preserving and losing our heritage resources and what we can learn from our experience, and what we could do to become more successful in the future.
We could explore where, how, and what we could do as a heritage community to leverage and increase our contributions to our community and to increasing our community around our common interests, and our community resources, our community contributors, and our common enterprise and increase our contribution as a community to our urban, community, cultural, and social evolution
We could explore roles for Heritage Vancouver, for the Community Arts Council, for the Alliance for Arts and Culture, and our other community resources, and how the Societies and Boards of Directors of these community enterprises could contribute to our common enterprise as a creative community. And as a creative community enterprise.

Creating community with stories
The story is an experience for the listener. The beginning is always why this story could excite our interest. The opportunity is aways what could excite our imagination and our ideas and our interest and our enterprise.
A creative idea
“Tales of the West End” is an invitation to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past. The JJBean coffee shop is located in the original Maxine’s hideaway, a West End landmark with many tales hidden in its walls. Originally a beauty parlour, many legends about tunnels and illicit activity in this building are part of the folklore of the West End. This is an opportunity to visit this newly renovated historic building, mingle with your neighbours, hear stories about Maxine’s and the West End from storyteller Mary Gavan , and explore opportunities and ideas to create community around the stories that contributed to creating our neighbourhood.”
A creative enterprise
We could connect and contribute the story of this creative idea, the story told about the community, and the story of the creative contribution to our imagination, to our ideas, and to our opportunities to tell the heritage stories that contributed to creating the experience of Vancouver we enjoy today, and to creating our community, our community culture, and our imagination of our creative possibilities for our future.
