We invite you to attend the sixth Heritage Symposium hosted by students of the Heritage Conservation programme at Carleton University, to be held on Saturday, March 26th, 2011 at St.Brigid’s Center for the Arts. This one-day event will bring together professionals and students of heritage conservation to discuss conservation through designation. The symposium will explore the benefits and challenges of designation through presentations, discussions, case studies and information panels.
Questions to be explored include:
What is the purpose of designation?
In what ways does designation meet – or fail- the goals of conservation?
What are alternative approaches to remembering the past and conserving heritage?
What are the common issues with designation?
What is the future of designation?
The Symposium will be held in the basement of St. Brigid’s Center for the Arts at 310 St. Patrick St in Lowertown, Ottawa.
