Theme will be "Remnants of the Past"

November 22, 2017

A remnant is defined as a remaining piece or surviving trace when the greater part of an entity is gone. Ruins of buildings and landscapes, abandoned public works, and relocated fragments of a lost community sometimes attract attention as remnants of an important activity from Ontario’s past. Even better, some are now enjoying active preservation or repurposing.


The Spring 2018 ACORN will look at both rural and urban examples where surviving traces remain to draw links to valued heritage and historic continuity. Articles should be a maximum of either 500 or 1000 words in length and “encourage the conservation and reuse of structures, districts, and landscapes of architectural, historic and cultural significance to inspire and benefit Ontarians.”


Before commencing work on an article, please send your proposal or questions to liz.lundell@rogers.com to avoid duplication and ensure photo guidelines are received. Deadline for submissions is January 29, 2018. Submitters are encouraged to look at past issues available on the ACO website: www.arconserv.ca.
