Bowstrings Banff is guided by these five operating principles.
Our relationships with our partners, funders, and others will be based on trust and mutual respect. Our actions will be socially responsible and environmentally intelligent.
We will connect people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and identities with the diverse cultural history of Banff to deepen cross-cultural understanding and foster a broader vision for the future.
We will continue to ask questions, explore ideas, and engage in focused experimentation in order to actively engage community with the natural and cultural history of Banff.
We will build awareness and capacity by establishing enduring and reciprocal partnerships with other actors in the heritage community.
We will seek to inform public policy in order to protect Banff’s natural and cultural history, and to provide the public with access to the information they need to protect heritage properties and sites in their community.
