The Living Heritage Symposium is a gathering of cultural heritage experts—from policy-makers to activists—working together to develop best practices for the treatment of cultural heritage, including intangible heritage. It is a solutions-driven event that uses the World Café format so participants may engage with each other to draft action steps for managing living heritage and urban development. This year the symposium will integrate the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in the discussions.

Join the Office of Historic Preservation (OHP), preservation professionals, and your neighbors at the 10th annual Historic Homeowner Fair to learn how to maintain your home!
The Historic Homeowner Fair is a free event hosted by OHP that brings together owners of aging and historic homes with local professionals, services, and solutions and educates homeowners about caring for and maintaining their properties.
HHF boasts a carefully curated Exhibit Hall located in the Pearl Stable, designed to provide the most relevant resources for homeowners such as design services, construction professionals, and purveyors of goods such as tile, metal fixtures, paint, and salvaged materials. Homeowners have the opportunity to learn hands-on skills at our workshops and learning sessions, held throughout the Fair. From restoring wood windows to retrofitting homes for energy efficiency, the topics of our educational programs are designed to meet the needs of the DIY renovator. There will also be door prizes, opportunities to speak with OHP about your historic home, and a keynote speaker.
There are many ways to support and participate in HHF 2018. If you’re interested in sponsoring HHF 2018 or reserving a table for your company, please contact John Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
