Registration is now open for Colorado Preservation Inc.’s 2022 Saving Places Conference.
The conference will take place as a hybrid event on Feb. 7-8 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, 1550 Court Place, and will continue as an online event on Feb. 9. This year, the conference also features a two-day On-the-Road component, planned for Aug. 5-6 in San Luis.
Saving Places is a preservation conference that offers “critical training, networking and educational opportunities to support the preservation community locally and nationwide,” states a news release. This year, titled Perspectives in Preservation, the conference will feature “voices that have been lost, sidelined or overlooked within the preservation community and beyond” and will “explore how communities identify, document, evaluate, protect and interpret Colorado’s irreplaceable historic and cultural resources.”
More than 80 speakers and more than 40 sessions/workshops ranging from beginner to advanced content will be offered.
The “2022 Saving Places On-the-Road will provide attendees a rare opportunity to get up-close with ongoing preservation projects happening in the San Luis Valley and National Heritage Area while recognizing the work of local community members, Colorado Preservation, Inc. and partner organizations,” states a news release.
The Saving Places Conference is paid for in part by a History Colorado State Historical Fund Grant.
