ICOMOS Canada is pleased to announce that Mallory Wilson is the recipient of the 2018 Jacques Dalibard Award, recognizing her emerging leadership in the field of heritage conservation. The award was created by ICOMOS Canada in 2002 as a tribute to its founder and first president. This year marks the revival of the award after several years of suspension, with a new formula and selection criteria that reflect Jacques Dalibard’s commitment in fostering new generations of practitioners.
Mallory Wilson is a 2017 graduate of the University of Montreal’s Master’s in Environmental Design (Conservation of the Built Environment), where her research explored the potential of temporary use as an alternative strategy for the conservation of historic buildings. Since co-founding the Montreal non-profit Entremise in 2016, she has devoted her efforts to implementing this vision, namely through the pilot projects of the “Laboratoire transitoire” partnership. Mallory is also actively involved in other heritage organizations and initiatives, is the co-founder of the Vivre le patrimoine! Heritage Festival, and co-recipient of the 2017 Grand Prix of the City of Montreal’s Opération Patrimoine.
ICOMOS Canada invites you to attend the award ceremony and conference of the laureate: “Urban blight to common good: The transitional revitalization of existing buildings by and for communities”, followed by a small reception.
The event will take place at 6:00 on Friday May 25th, at the Notman House (51 Sherbrooke Street West, 3rd floor, Clarke Room), during ICOMOS Canada’s Annual Meeting in Montreal, and is open to the public. Please note that the venue is unfortunately not universally accessible.
