Conversations about Irish Cultural Landscapes Public Symposium

Wed, 08 May 2019 00:05:00 IST
Conversations about Irish Cultural Landscapes  

The CULTURE-NATURE Spectrum: Conversations about Irish Cultural Landscapes with an international perspective, a public symposium hosted by ICOMOS Ireland National Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes, will take place in the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin 9, on Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th June 2019.

The intention of the symposium is to initiate discussion and develop awareness about cultural landscape; to understand the broad nature of the term while looking at the particular; and to share the Irish experience with an international audience.  The proposed sub-themes include:

  • Layered Landscapes: continuing, evolving and cared for by a community;
  • Pleasure Landscapes: demesnes, landscape parks and gardens, historic urban parks, places for leisure;
  • Water Landscapes: bogs, coastal landscapes and their role in supporting ecological and sustainable responses to climate change; and
  • Associative Cultural Landscapes: addressing the presence of intangible heritage in the landscape.

The brochure, including the full programme of talks and booking details, is available to download here:
