Call for Nominations for Landslide 2021: Race and Space
The call for nominations for Landslide® 2021: Race and Space is now open. This follows the announcement in late 2020 that “Race and Space” would be the unifying theme for The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s (TCLF) programmatic agenda beginning in 2021. As an education and advocacy organization, we will make visible, instill value and engage the public in these myriad cultural landscapes that collectively convey who we are, where we came from, and where we are going as a nation comprised of diverse people. TCLF is committing to a comprehensive, ongoing effort across all of our programming and advocacy initiatives to reveal the stories of these largely unrecognized cultural landscapes and lifeways. One of TCLF's principal education and advocacy initiative is Landslide and the annual thematic Landslide report about cultural landscapes that are threatened and at-risk. The goal is to draw immediate and lasting attention to threatened sites by making them more visible, revealing their value, and promoting public engagement in the form of advocacy and stewardship.
We continue to witness the surfacing of long neglected and largely unknown stories about cultural landscapes associated with African Americans and other non-White citizens. Some are known, while many are invisible; others have been erased. TCLF has focused on a number of sites associated with civil and human rights; that was the case with the Landslide 2018 thematic report, Grounds for Democracy, which included the Lynching Sites of Shelby County, Tennessee, Japanese American Confinement Sites, and many others.
The deadline to submit is June 15, 2021, and questions can be submitted to Nord Wennerstrom: firstname.lastname@example.org.
