The Longwood Graduate Program Symposium
About this Event
Join us for our 2015 symposium
To Preserve or Change: Redefining Heritage to Guide the Future
New institutions have a responsibility to craft a meaningful story to pass on to future generations. Established institutions have a responsibility to maintain their time-honored traditions for the benefit and enrichment of the public. Or do they?
The 2015 Longwood Graduate Program Symposium, To Preserve or Change: Redefining Heritage to Guide the Future, will explore revisiting a public garden or related institution’s heritage and planning for the future. Is it appropriate to maintain values set forth by previous generations, or reinterpret them to remain relevant?
The Longwood Graduate Program is excited to announce a new Emerging Professionals Travel Award to attend the 2015 Longwood Graduate Symposium. This award is for students, interns, and garden or museum professionals in the beginning stages of their careers.
