The following paper was written for Dr. Sharon Vattay’s Heritage Conservation Planning course in Cultural Resource Management Program at UVic. I had never taken a course on heritage conservation before, so the concepts and processes were new to me. It was a fascinating course with lots to learn. Throughout the course my building of choice for various assignments was the Janion building, an old hotel turned office space/warehouse/derelict building that is now becoming micro-condos located right next to the Johnson Street Bridge. The course culminated with a final conservation plan, which you can see below.
As the Marketing Assistant intern at Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites, one of my responsibilities was assisting with promoting special events and site rentals. Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites are excellent venues for weddings in particular because of the scenic landscape and coastline (the site looks straight across at the Olympic Mountains), the picturesque historic lighthouse, and the unique setting of an old military fort. The grounds are also very large, providing wedding guests plenty of space, privacy, and areas to walk around. My own cousin was married at the Fort just last summer!
To help with the creation of a new wedding promotions package, I adapted an old site rental promotions document to contain wedding information and additional on-site tourism offers such as the oTENTik accommodations. Using Adobe Illustrator, I incorporated pictures, text and graphics into a document that can be displayed online or handed out to potential site renters along with a FAQ and site use guidelines document. French versions of the documents were also produced.
