Lakeside's 145th Chautauqua Season

  • Lakeside Chautauqua (map)

For historic preservation to retain its relevance, we must think outside the traditional constructs of how we save buildings and educate people on the past. Sarah Marsom will discuss ways to connect the past to present, with an emphasis on creative connections for youth and millennials. Focusing on case studies from her work with the Young Ohio Preservationists and creation of the Tiny Activist Project, you'll learn what #beersavesplaces means, how art enhances history, ways to utilize a National Register of Historic Places nomination for more than an honorary designation, and the tricks to turn children into architectural detectives. Sarah's passion for preservation and out of the box efforts led to her appointment on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's inaugural 40 Under 40: People Saving Places initiative. This lecture is free and open to the public with admission into Lakeside Chautauqua ($23.50/day pass)
