Miss the 2018 symposium? Watch the TrustLive video and review presentations online.
The Living Heritage Symposium is a gathering of cultural heritage experts—from policy-makers to activists—working together to develop best practices for the treatment of cultural heritage, including intangible heritage. It is a solutions-driven event that uses the World Café format so participants may engage with each other to draft action steps for managing living heritage and urban development. This year the symposium will integrate the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in the discussions.
We are pleased to welcome The National Trust for Historic Preservation as a lunch sponsor and host of a TrustLive event at the symposium. The lunch speaker will address intangible heritage as a prelude to the PastForward Conference to be held in San Francisco in November. The TrustLive event will be broadcast nationally and will include a panel discussion after the keynote. Don’t miss this exciting broadcast, better yet attend the symposium to watch the event live and participate in the drafting of an action plan. We will announce the speaker soon, so stay tuned!
A “Cultural Extravaganza” featuring performances and cuisines of San Antonio’s many cultures will open the symposium. This festive event will take place at the renowned Institute of Texan Cultures. Site visits and a culinary tour with local chefs will highlight the UNESCO Creative Cities Network sustainable development goals and the Symposium will conclude with a magical evening at Restored by Light at the World Heritage Site, Mission San Jose. World Heritage Festival events will also be taking place during this time.
Please continue to stay tuned as we add speakers to this list.
