This year PastForward kicks off a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act with educational opportunities, Field Studies and networking events that celebrate a half century of success, acknowledge challenges, uncover opportunities and look forward to the next 50 years.
We want YOU to be among the group of preservationists who will be directing the future of preservation. Register today.
Core conference programming provides focused education and new ideas in order for attendees to elevate the role and expand the meaning of their preservation work within their communities. The four main tracks at PastForward 2015 are:
preservationFUTURE: Plan for the next 50 years, including how preservation changes, adapts and grows to meet the changing landscape of the movement.
preservationURBAN: Explore the tools and solutions that take preservation to scale in our downtown communities. Sponsored by The 1772 Foundation.
preservationINNOVATION: Learn from Federal Agencies tackling challenges and seeking opportunities on the front lines of preservation.
preservationVOICES: Hear from those using place to seek justice, foster inclusivity and tell the full American story. Sponsored by the National Park Service.
