Preservation works by creating jobs and revitalizing communities. Preservation works by restoring the buildings and neighborhoods where working people live, play, and earn a paycheck. Preservation works by interpreting the history of labor in Rhode Island. And preservation works by maintaining and improving public works like historic roads, reservoirs, bridges, parks, and bicycle trails.
Have a suggestion for a conference workshop, tour, or speaker? Workshops run 75 minutes long and focus on topics like places of work, economic development, preservation trades, building rehabs, etc. Topics are not limited to "Preservation Works"--if you want to share a great idea that relates to historic preservation in Rhode Island, please do. Tours run for 1.25, 2.5, or 3 hours long.
To make a suggestion, email Sarah Zurier. If you are suggesting a topic for a tour or workshop, please include the names of potential speakers or organizations that might participate. The conference program will be available online and in print in March.
