As The Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre reaches middle age, the landmark has partnered with Vancouver Heritage Foundation for a collaboration series; Perspectives.
In conjunction with its 40th anniversary, Perspectives, is a series of talks that explores Vancouver’s thought-provoking history that has shaped the city’s present. Inspired by the rich history surrounding the Vancouver Lookout, Vancouver Heritage Foundation planned five unique speakers to present on the diverse history of Vancouver. From the unique vantagepoint offered by the Lookout, guests will enjoy fascinating talks on Indigenous stories and context, South Asian history and immigration, architectural development and change, Vancouver music scene and nightlife, and the city’s seedy criminal history.
