4th annual
Creating Livable Communities Symposium:
Linking Public History and Community Revitalization
May 21, 2005
University of Missouri - St. Louis

This year's "Creating Livable Communities Symposium" is a one-day
program focusing on history and place as tools for community
building.  Twelve concurrent sessions and workshops will share the
experience of educators, community organizers, preservationists, oral
historians, and activists exploring the question of how public history
can be part of the revitalization of cities and neighborhoods.

Plenary speaker Marci Reaven of "Place Matters" (www.placematters.net)
will discuss meaningful public history processes that can empower
citizens and inspire communities.  Presenters include Michael Frisch
(SUNY - University at Buffalo) who will demonstrate the democratizing
potential of new oral history methods.  Professor Frisch will also
deliver a free pre-symposium lecture on Friday on Worlds Fair
Centennial experiences.
