Event description
Join us in Honolulu, Hawai'i as we convene for the 2020 National APIA Historic Preservation Forum on January 31 - February 3!

About this Event

We are pleased to have Honolulu, Hawai’i as our host for the 2020 National Asian and Pacific Islander American Forum on January 31 - February 3. With the theme of “Envisioning Our Future, Preserving Our Histories and Places,” we are working with community partners in Honolulu to host this convening. We aim for this Forum to highlight the city’s diverse histories and cultures while learning from and about the challenges in preservation. Historic preservation is often an underutilized tool not only for preserving historic sites and cultural resources but also in leveraging it for economic development and community engagement.

Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in Historic Preservation (APIAHiP) is a volunteer-based nonprofit dedicated to leading in the preservation and awareness of Asian and Pacific Islander American historic sites and heritage across the United States and its territories. Since our founding in 2007, APIAHiP has worked to create greater awareness of historic sites and cultural resources significant to Asian and Pacific Islander Americans (APIAs) with advocacy efforts and educational programs, while building a vast network of supporters. With every Forum, we aim to partner with local scholars, practitioners, and organizations to highlight their innovative work in historic preservation. For APIAHiP, historic preservation is broadly defined as we want to be inclusive and relevant to our communities, which often means that we look at issues related to public policy, humanities, arts and culture, intangible heritage, environment/conservation, urban planning, community development, and so forth.

An anticipated audience of over 250 attendees from across the nation will convene in Honolulu for our 3-day gathering. The 2020 Forum is designed to address the need to support historic and cultural preservation efforts that are important for APIAs by bringing together experts in the fields of preservation, community development, history, and the arts with community groups, practitioners, and students. Attendees will enjoy educational panels, tours of historic sites and neighborhoods, film screenings, and group discussions about the diverse stories of APIAs in US history.
