There are authorized definitions of what “historic preservation” is, and there are countless ways in which individuals or communities have forged their own definitions. This session of the course explores ways in which practices of preserving places or holding memories have amplified marginalized voices, challenged dominant narratives of the past, and provided support for struggles against gentrification, displacement, and cultural forgetting.

Registration for each class is required. Please contact [email protected] if you require any accommodations to participate in the program.

Facilitated by National Building Arts Center Executive Director, Michael Allen, this five-week class series will examine the multiverse of historic preservation practices in our world today. Classes will meet each week at the museum and will include assigned readings, guest lectures, and open spaces for discussion. This class series is best for teens and adults.
