November 5 — 7, 2015
Three days of speakers, panels, and tours
The 2015 Providence Symposium, Beyond Buildings: Preserving the Living Neighborhood, will examine community identity, local assets, and the importance of “human capital” to our city’s success. Building on our 2014 focus on Downtown Providence, we are now moving into the residential areas to contextualize current trends in mobility and home ownership; discuss strategies for community development; and honor the individual character of Providence’s neighborhoods.
Majora Carter, Urban Revitalization Strategist and Social-Enterprise Pioneer
Ned Kaufman Ph. D., historic preservationist and author of Place, Race, and Story: Essays on the Past and Future of Historic Preservation.
Dr. Kaufman's appearance at the Providence Symposium is made possible by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
