PastForward is the premier educational and networking event for those who are passionate about saving places, and if you can’t be there in person in San Francisco, join virtually November 13-16. Select conference programming including the Welcome Address and the Closing Luncheon will be livestreamed. In addition, the three TrustLives covering this year’s main conference themes, the culture-nature connection, intangible heritage, and resilience, will be livestreamed for free. Sign up to receive details on how you can be a virtually attendee at PastForward 2018! PastForwardConference.org
All you need to do is sign up as a virtual attendee.
We also encourage you to host a “viewing party” with your colleagues and peers to start your own discussions around our key conference themes (intangible heritage, the culture-nature connection, and resilience). This is especially useful when some of you are attending and others are not – we’re hosting one here at our HQ in DC for our colleagues who won’t be joining. See attached details on how to do this: Viewing Party Kit
