Event description

Description

Join the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia and Baltimore Heritage for a day of conversation and collaboration on open education, neighborhoods and historic preservation. We invite neighborhood activists and preservation professionals for a half-day interactive workshop where we will create a collection of online lessons for the Local Preservation School. By sharing our knowledge, we can help communities protect important historic places from demolition and work to promote new infill, development that meets their needs.

This event is part of the 2016 DesignPhiladelphia Festival. Thank you to Penn's School of Design for hosting our workshop at Meyerson Hall.
