Description: Today, preservation trades instructors are training a new generation of craftspeople for rewarding careers in historic preservation that support local ecomomies. This session, featuring two recoginized experts in preservation trades, will demonstrate how ornamental plaster is restored at the historic Indianapolis City Hall while discussing careers in the preservation trades.
Description: Future preservation practitioners, selected competitively from historic preservation progams across the country, will present their visions for rebooting preservation for new audiences. Students will assess the Conference’s themes: “Mapping a New Agenda, Paying for Preservation, and Rebooting for Preservation.” A panel of educators will debate ideas presented by the students.
NCPE will select four students to present papers at the National Trust Conferences. NCPE will provide registration for the selected students. Details can be found here. All currently-enrolled students are encouraged to apply!
