The National Trust for Canada invites individuals and organizations interested in presenting at National Trust Conference 2016 to submit a proposal for consideration.
The National Trust Conference is Canada’s largest event for professionals, practitioners and volunteers engaged in regenerating and saving places that matter. It offers an exciting opportunity to gain recognition and exchange ideas with over 500 participants from a diverse range of backgrounds: architects, planners, heritage professionals, government representatives, heritage organizations, volunteers, educators and students.
National Trust Conference 2016, Heritage Rising, is inspired by Hamilton, a resilient city with an exceptional heritage legacy. In Hamilton, heritage-led regeneration is transforming the city’s urban fabric and creating a dynamic new civic identity.
Heritage Rising will explore the cutting-edge of heritage thought and practice – in Canada and abroad, urban and rural – including Indigenous heritage, community revitalization and climate change. It will also build on Hamilton’s experience to examine how heritage reflects cultural diversity and contributes to social goals like poverty reduction, food security and public health.
Deadline for Submissions: March 24, 2016
Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be made in early May 2016. Presenters of accepted abstracts will receive a discount on full conference registration.
