The San Antonio Living Heritage Symposium is a collaborative forum bringing international and local heritage professionals, policy-makers, grassroots preservationists and academics together for an exchange of ideas leading to the development of best practices for safeguarding cultural heritage.

Experts will present relevant work and attendees will work together in World Cafe style workshops to draft recommendations that San Antonio and other U.S. cities can utilize.
