Event description

Description

Bmore Historic is a participant-led unconference at the Baltimore Museum of Industry for scholars, students, professionals and volunteers who care about public history, historic preservation and cultural heritage in the Baltimore region. Bmore Historic is organized by Baltimore Heritage and a team of volunteers. Special thanks to the UMBC Orser Center, UMBC Dresher Center for the Humanities, and Wikimedia DC for supporting Bmore Historic in 2018.

As always, Bmore Historic is a unique opportunity to spend a day with friends, neighbors, and colleagues interested in exploring the connections between people, places and the past in Baltimore and Maryland. This year, we are planning a set of sessions focused on equity and access with potential topics including improving public access to archives, universal accessibility, and inclusive interpretation.

We are also partnering with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and Wikimedia DC to host a special Wikipedia edit-a-thon focused on creating articles on local architects who belong to historically underrepresented groups (especially women and Black architects). Bmore Historic is a place where many kinds of participation are welcoming: enthusiatic speaking out and careful listening; practicing hands-on skills and struggling with big issues. Exepect thoughtful conversations but no academic papers or boring slideshows.

Please come out and explore how we can build on our community's cultural heritage to create a better future for all people in our region. If you have never participated in an unconference, please read our Bmore Historic 101 guide to learn more. If you're interested in facilitating a session, check out our facilitator guide.

What should you wear at Bmore Historic?

Bmore Historic is a come-as-you-are event where most participants will be casually dressed. We care more about the substance of what you have to say than what you wear while saying it.

How do I propose a session for Bmore Historic?

Check out our guide on how to propose an unconference session then submit your idea online. We are in the process of updating the guide so stay tuned! We are also planning a happy hour in the next few weeks where you can share your ideas for sessions, get feedback, and meet collaborators.
