What will the workshop cover?
The term Cultural Heritage Landscape and its application is gaining momentum in Ontario. This workshop will look at the theory behind the term. The second day will be used for examining a local example to determine its significance, a process that can then be applied in participants’ towns and cities.

A Cultural Heritage Landscape is:

4. valued by a community 
5. is of significance to the understanding of a people, or a place.

Goals of the workshop:
To provide a second level of training in Heritage beyond the Heritage Planning Workshop
To create awareness and understanding of the theory of Cultural Heritage Landscapes
To provide an opportunity for the application of Cultural Heritage Landscapes

The workshop fee for practicing planners and other concerned citizens will be $225*. This price will include lunch and snacks on both days of the workshop.
