Pushing Preservation Forward 

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's presentation will delve into what the next generation of preservation leaders are doing to connect people to past, 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, and ways to utilize a National Register of Historic Places nomination for more than an honorary designation. Sarah will also highlight selected works by her peers who are pushing the boundaries of what preservation means.  Q&A and optional Athens exploration to follow.
