Book tickets now for CHeriScape V conference at Gateshead in June
The fifth and final CHeriScape conference takes place this June in Gateshead. bringing to a close the three-year international programme exploring the concept of 'landscape as heritage'.
Past sessions (in Ghent, Amersfoort, Oslo and Madrid) have covered the contribution of landscape and heritage to mainstream policy and decision making; their role in science and research; their connections to community at all scales; and landscape and heritage as frames for responding to environmental and global change.
The Gateshead event on 14-16 June will focus on 'landscape in imagination and the virtual future', responding to new and different ways people experience landscapes, particularly through digital media. There will be three themed sessions: 'looking back from the future: the future legibility of the past'; 'new neighbourhoods, new neighbours'; and 'looking inward: imagined and remembered landscapes'.
The international list of speakers will include Julian Smith (Willowbank Centre for Cultural Landscape, Canada), Maria Roussou (Greece), Aine O’Brien (Counterpoint Arts, Ireland), Nadia Bartolini (UK), Julie Sanders (UK) and Elisa Giaccardi (NL).
The event is organised by the University of Newcastle and will take place at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. Tickets cost £100. More information and to register here
The conference series has been funded through the European Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage.
