The 17th Annual Symposium of the Heritage Association of South Africa (HASA) will be held in Heidelberg, Gauteng from Thursday, 19 October to Saturday, 21 October 2017.
Exploring the theme, 'The Crown of the Suikerbosrand', the programme will be co-hosted by HASA in association with the newly reconstituted Heidelberg Heritage Association.
The symposium will critically evaluate the heritage gems of Heidelberg spanning many centuries – some of which are seriously threatened and others entirely neglected. Various experts and academics will examine the history, archaeology and architecture of Heidelberg and excursions and exclusive viewings of heritage sites form part of the programme.
