Oregon Heritage Conference
scheduled for May 6-8 in Ashland
Nearly 30 workshops, walking tours, seminars, speakers, bus tours, and meetings are planned for the sixth Oregon Heritage Conference scheduled to take place May 6-8 in Ashland. Participants will also have opportunities to sample the variety of heritage and cultural offerings in Ashland and Jackson County.
"Everybody with an interest in Oregon's heritage will find something to participate in," says Kyle Jansson, the coordinator of the Oregon Heritage Commission. "We're involving people with different perspectives, goals and objectives in this event. We want to make the Ashland conference a memorable one."
A partial list of topics include re-development of historic buildings, local history publishing, heritage tourism, heritage economic development, interpreting Asian American heritage, creating and managing digital archives, publishing local history, cultural resource management, and more.
Community leaders, volunteers and staff from museums, historical societies, ethnic organizations, schools and educational institutions, historic preservation, humanities disciplines, travel and tourism industry, economic development, local, state and federal government agencies, and history buffs will find this to be a valuable and stimulating event.
The 2004 Heritage Conference will be headquartered in the historic Ashland Springs Hotel. A special conference rate has been obtained and room reservations may be made there now. The Oregon Heritage Commission is organizing the conference, with support from the State Historic Preservation Office, the Southern Oregon Historical Society, the Oregon Heritage Trust, the City of Ashland, the Oregon Museums Association and others.
A brochure with the full conference agenda will be posted on the Heritage Commission website at www.oregonheritage.org and mailed to heritage organizations. More information will also be available from heritage.info at state.or.us as well as Oregon Heritage News. We look forward to seeing you in Ashland!
