The 2018 Providence Symposium will present a range of events aimed to engage the public, design professionals, students, and PPS members as we investigate the layers of (sometimes invisible) cultural landscapes present in this city.
Each use shapes our city’s landscape in tangible and intangible ways, from buildings and rivers to place names and memories. The Symposium will explore the many landscapes of our city—sacred, industrial, formal, threatened, vanished—and contemplate the ways we can recall and protect them or their memory for those who follow us.
Noted academics and heritage professionals will help us to unpack the breadth and depth of this emerging area of study, as well as offer case studies to relate elements of cultural landscapes to our ever-evolving urban landscape.
More information and registration coming soon.
