Administrative history

Habitat Forum took place at Jericho Beach Park from May 27th until June 11th, 1976. It was a conference/exposition that happened in conjunction with the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements, also known as the Habitat conference. According to the Habitat Forum program, found in the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements fonds (AM337), “Habitat Forum is the collective name for the non-governmental activities related to Habitat: the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements.”

Habitat Forum staff and volunteers converted the five airplane hangars at Jericho Beach Park (former air force base) to an exhibition site for the Habitat Forum. They worked at the site from October 1975 until May of 1976 to prepare.

Because entry to the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements was limited to government delegates, selected NGO officials and press, the Habitat Forum provided a space for members of the public to engage with the conference and monitor the U.N. sessions via closed circuit television remotely from the Forum site.

Habitat Forum was primarily funded by the Canadian government as part of the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements with some assistance from the United Nations in funds and labour. Habitat Forum was organized by various individuals with affiliations to the U.N. however there was no official U.N. agency responsible for settlements issues until 1978.

Custodial history

The fonds is comprised of two donations. The first donation in 1984, consisted of slides, negatives and prints left at the end of the conference, salvaged by the Centre for Human Settlements and donated to the City of Vancouver Archives. Then in 2011, Erol Baykal donated his negatives and slides taken during Habitat Forum to be added to the collection.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of photographs documenting the Habitat Forum conference. Most of the photographs were taken by Erol Baykal. The photographs show the Forum site, the interior and exterior of the Hangars, site construction, sawmill and lumber salvaging, creation and placement of banners and textiles, crew members, visiting delegates, tours, performers, presenters, and various other conference activities.
