We’ve created a monster.
Heritage Rising will be the largest, most ambitious conference program we’ve ever put together. Why not seriously/radically/dramatically expand your horizons by attending Canada’s largest heritage learning and networking event?
Hear two of the most edgy, visionary thinkers in heritage conservation today. Rodney Harrison of University College London probes the future of heritage, while New York’s Franklin Vagnone (co-author of The Anarchist Guide to Historic House Museums) examines adaptation.
Participate in sessions that get to the heart of thought-provoking topics surrounding Indigenous heritage and reconciliation, the tension between principles and passion in architectural conservation and how to harness the power of older places and incentivize their renewal.
Empowering workshops and field sessions
Hamilton will be a living conference laboratory. Our workshops will get you out of your seat and on the street to build your skills. From repairing terracotta and reviving downtowns, to new strategies for heritage inventories, historic sites and fundraising. Earn professional learning credits in the process!
Pump up your networks
We have built in ample opportunities to connect with old friends and make new ones at abundant social events, small group tours and meal breaks.
We’re looking forward to exploring Hamilton with you at Heritage Rising.
