Nichols House Museum Symposium
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of its founding, the Nichols House Museum is pleased to present the symposium "Sustaining Heritage, Sustaining Communities: Museums and Historic Preservation in the 21st Century." On September 30, 2011, five speakers from Europe and the United States will come together to share experiences from their museums and heritage sites that have showcased, revived, and sustained their respective communities. Through promoting cross-cultural understanding in Honduras; reinventing uses for historic British buildings; preserving and presenting a 17th century church in Amsterdam; conserving a national landmark in Chicago for social and cultural inclusivity; and boosting heritage tourism in Jamaica, each case study demonstrates the power sustainability has on a community's heritage and economy. Please join us for this full day event.
Currently enrolled full time students may register for the Symposium for $25. Documentation of student status must accompany registration. Space is limited, please register early.
Full refunds will be given for cancellations received by Friday, September 16, 2011. No refunds will be made after September 16, 2011.
