PastForward is the premier educational and networking event for those in the business of saving places in Chicago from November 14-17, 2017.
Art, advocacy, and innovation are the hallmarks of preservation in Chicago, where outstanding architecture and diverse neighborhoods have become a proving ground for preservation approaches. At PastForward 2017 we’ll focus on “forward,” exploring the next generation of preservation tools and techniques-high-tech, big data, virtual.
While we’ll explore many topics at PastForward 2017, we’ll focus on the following themes:
- ReUrbanism-especially preservation’s role in creating economically and environmentally sustainable, equitable, and healthy communities.
- Technology-applying the next generation of technological applications to the work of saving places.
- Health-better understand and advocate for the physical and psychological benefits of older and historic places.
- Connections-using place to make history visible and build understanding, community trust, and civility.
