On Saturday, March 2, 9:30 am-3 pm, The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage is organizing their fourth annual Hacking Heritage unconference. It is attended by a diverse group, and many of the conversations revolve around issues of community participation and engagement.  

The event website has more information, and there are -so far- 6 proposals at this website -- they will give you a sense of the range and types of session proposals that run during the day at the conference. So many real-life projects were born from Hacking Heritage sessions in which partnerships emerged. For Example; the Latino heritage/PPS partnership, which came out of a session.

Registration is $10. Hacking Heritage will be held in Room 305 on the 3rd floor of Pembroke Hall at 172 Meeting Street on the campus of Brown University.
