15 June / Landslide 2024: Demonstration Grounds, Call for Nominations, TCLF

The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) has opened a call for nominations for Landslide, the foundation’s annual thematic report about threatened and at-risk landscapes. Landslide 2024: Demonstration Grounds will focus on sites associated with demonstrations and movements.

These multiple associations are waiting to be unlocked at almost every historic property or cultural landscape that has served as a demonstration site. This includes public parks and open spaces that today are known principally for their design history or designers but should also be recognized as those places where significant cultural events were staged. These spaces also include rural agricultural landscapes and academic, governmental, and cultural campuses. Cultural landscapes have served as a stage for events ranging from humble to heroic including speeches, poetry, protests, marches, pickets, vigils, art installations, and performances, and each has a story to tell. Individually and collectively, they provide an extraordinary perspective on what it means to live and participate in a democracy.

Nominate a site to Landslide 2024: Demonstration Grounds by completing the form and emailing it to Nord Wennerstrom at nord@tclf.org by June 15, 2024.
