Preservation Leadership Training | Repair Work: Telling the Full History at Our Historic Sites
(Registration for Non-Annual Meeting Attendees)
8:00 am – 5:00 pm Wednesday, March 27
Facilitators: Staff of the National Trust for Historic Preservation
Location: Connecticut Convention Center, Meeting Room 21
For decades, public historians have been working to tell the full history of the American past at historic sites around the country. However, preservation and collections practices have limited methods to tell those stories using material culture and existing physical spaces.
During this Preservation Leadership Training facilitated by staff at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, attendees will learn new best practices for inclusive interpretation at historic sites through case studies from historic sites around the country.
Using interactive methods, participants will learn how to understand and include voices that were deliberately excluded in previous interpretations at historic sites and obtain strategies and tools to address the absence of collections, material culture, and critical documentation.
This workshop is sponsored and facilitated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Attendees will have time for lunch on their own in Hartford.
