The annual conference of the National Trust For Historic Preservation—PastForward Online 2021—will take place November 2-5, 2021, to convene leading change-makers in historic building preservation, restoration and reuse.
Historic preservationists are change-makers dedicated to strengthening communities. Yet we are all grappling with significant, overlapping challenges, from pandemic shutdowns and economic shock to racial injustice and a changing climate. Today, the preservation movement’s work has never been more important and more vital.
However, meaningful changes are needed in many aspects of our practices and policies, from how it is determined which historic places are preserved and interpreted, to how we can evolve our practices to ensure the full American story is being told.
Celebrate the power of place, virtually, with thousands of preservationists and preservation lovers at the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s online conference for those who work to save, sustain, and interpret historic places.
