This year at PastForward, November 15-18 in Houston we’re exploring how the activation of historic places can better teach history, tell stories, and promote reconciliation and healing. With the preservationPLACES track, discover how historic site stewardship, interpretation, and planning are evolving to address contemporary challenges and make sites vital and relevant resources in their communities.
To prepare for this topic, visit the Preservation Leadership Forum (PLF) Blog for the preservationPLACES: Reading List, including more details about the preservationPLACES TrustLive keynote speaker, Nina Simon, executive director, Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History. In addition to the reading list, check out the PastForward preview Q/A with Nina and stay tuned for details on Nina’s book signing at PastForward.
