The Greater Hudson Heritage Network’s Annual Conference has been set for Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at the Bear Mountain Inn & Conference Center in Bear Mountain, NY.
This year, organizers are looking for presentations that address how historic sites have found a way to give voice to individuals who have been marginalized or forgotten in history. They are especially interested in hands-on experiences; immersive experiences; and public programming that increases community engagement.
This year the Conference will follow a format called ‘follow the speaker”. The Conference will be divided into three blocks of speakers – which will be presented to all Conference attendees. In each block, speakers will have 15 minutes to present. At the conclusion of the block, all the speakers from that block will go to a separate space where interested participants can come to sit and chat with presenters to ask their questions directly and engage in conversation for up to 45 minutes. The “follow the speaker” format allows for participants to choose if they’d like to hear more about presentations, and fosters a deeper conversation. Discussion for all sessions should include successes, challenges, and/or lessons learned.
Presenters will receive a discounted registration rate of $45.
