Programs and Sponsorship Opportunities for 2023:
In 2023 The Cultural Landscape Foundation's celebrates its 25th anniversary season.
Landslide 2023: Each year TCLF creates a thematic Landslide® report and digital exhibition about threatened and at-risk cultural landscapes, with the goal of making each site more visible, revealing its value, and promoting public engagement in the form of advocacy and stewardship. In 2023, TCLF will commemorate 25 years of advocacy through its annual report, highlighting significant accomplishments and those sites which are still under threat. The call for nominations for Landslide 2023 will be issued in February 2023 and the report will be released in the Fall.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo or name on the program web page, in the digital exhibition, in e-blasts, and recognition in the press release, and elsewhere.
Walks & Talks: This relatively new and extremely popular program focused on urban landscapes features walking tours led by award-winning landscapes who offer their unique perspectives on places they see daily as they walk to work and/or through favorite public landscapes. Limited to 25 attendees and ranging from 90 minutes to three hours in duration, Walks & Talks are unscripted, mobile seminars led by design thought leaders who share their unique way of seeing the world.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo or name on the program web page, in e-blasts, recognition in the press release, and elsewhere.
What’s Out There Weekends: Hosted in different cities every year, What’s Out There® Weekends bring to light the unique landscape legacy and local character of each city as reflected by its publicly accessible parks, gardens, plazas, cemeteries, memorials, and neighborhoods. Engaging large and diverse audiences (typically 1,000+), this program offers two days of free, expert-led tours of more than two dozen sites that demonstrate the region’s diverse landscape legacy, encouraging participants to discover the little-known design history of places they may pass every day.

Garden Dialogues: Now in its eleventh year, Garden Dialogues brings together landscape architects and their clients to discuss the creative process, the give and take, and the collaboration that yields a great garden. This unique program offers small groups the opportunity to experience some of today’s most beautiful gardens created by some of the most accomplished landscape architects and designers currently in practice. In this tenth anniversary season, Garden Dialogues will take place across the country from March through October, with tours offering audiences the chance to join the conversation among owner, designer, and, if appropriate, other significant contributors to the garden’s design (e.g., architect, master gardener, historian).

Pioneers of American Landscape Design Oral History Project: Pioneers oral histories are an ever-growing, award-winning series of videotaped first-person interviews with significant practitioners. Now featuring seventeen oral histories, the series examines each designer’s personal and professional history, their overall design philosophy, and how that approach was carried out in their most emblematic projects. The richly edited video segments include never-before-seen archival footage, new photography, and on‐location videography.
This year's oral histories include:
- Julie Bargmann, inaugural recipient of the Cornelia Hahn Oberlander International Landscape Architecture Prize.
Commensurate with sponsorship level, benefits include recognition on project’s web page, recognition on project launch e-blasts and press release, and more.
Race and Space: Announced in 2020, the Race and Space initiative spans all of TCLF’s programming and is dedicated to increasing documentation and awareness of cultural landscapes throughout the U.S. associated with African Americans, Latinx Americans, Native peoples, and others. In 2021, the annual Landslide report and digital exhibition examined thirteen sites through detailed, richly illustrated narratives and eighteen short videos. In 2023, TCLF will further expand its databases of sites, including the addition of important typologies (e.g. freedom colonies, burial grounds, campuses of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, etc.), and pioneering professionals and others associated with the sites. Working with local partners, sites will be identified, research conducted, and final text, photography, and documentary style video created and uploaded to TCLF’s online database. This content will be folded into TCLF’s free, searchable What’s Out There database, which features more than 2,500 site descriptions, 1,000 profiles, and 12,000 images, all vetted by researchers and historians. Each entry includes a description of the site’s design history, photographs, and an interactive map.
- Race and Space Conversations is an ongoing series of free, virtual moderated discussions between esteemed experts--including landscape architects, historians, kin-keepers, and public officials--reckoning with spatial inequities and reimagining our built and natural environment.
