You can contact me directly with any questions or concerns, as I am the Program Manager. We are completing this workshop series for the first time (for Fall/Winter), and it has been well-received.
@Thomas Frank you read my mind this morning! I realized that I left the NFSP off the list above.Grant Funding for Sacred PlacesHistoric houses of worship, from prairie churches to urban synagogues, are the bedrocks that continue to sustain us as a people, uniting us in service and celebration. Together, we can protect them for generations to come-apply for a grant from the National Fund for Sacred Places to keep these places as an important part of our national cultural heritage.
The National Fund provides training, planning grants, technical assistance, capacity-building support, and capital grants up to $250,000 to congregations of all faiths for rehabilitation work on their historic facilities.Congregations are urged to submit their letter of intent by March 15 for the Fund for Sacred Places for projects such as:
• Urgent repair needs that are integral to life safety.• Projects that improve the usability or ADA accessibility of the property.• Renovation projects for important community outreach.
In the four years of this program, 52 houses of worship from an Art Deco gem in Asheville, NC to a Modern sanctuary in New York City have received more than $10 million in funding supporting projects that range from steeple stabilization to exterior masonry repair to HVAC replacement. Learn about past participants Temple Beth Ahabah (Richmond, VA) and North Christian Church (Columbus, IN), as well as the full list of the 2020 recipients.

Saving Places is going Virtual for 2021! But this is not just another Zoom meeting. For over 20 years the Saving Places Conference has been THE historic preservation conference in the region, gaining a reputation far extending our Colorado borders. If you have never been in the past or have made the conference part of your February traditions – now more than ever we need you here!
The threats and challenges addressing preservation and its related fields are real, but so are the success stories and positive moves forward. This year we are bringing you content directly tied to the current climate with panels addressing issues of economic development, COVID-specific challenges, and question of relevance and inclusion.
Join us for three days of substantive content that begins each day with a keynote speaker and breaks you off into four blocks of session content, with three choices of sessions per block and one interactive networking breakout option. That is over 36 sessions, workshops, and breakouts that can be joined live or accessed later.See you there! https://virtual.savingplacesconference.org/
Join us for the 2021 Fitch Colloquium Friday, February 19, 2021 from 12:00pm-5:15pm (EST). Presented by The Columbia GSAPP Historic Preservation Program and the National Trust for Historic Preservation
Artists are leading a broad rethinking of heritage, and claiming a central role within preservation practice. In recent years, many BIPOC artists have worked with built heritage to take up the legacies of racial inequities and historical injustices as central themes in their work. Artists confront, challenge, or reframe the role of heritage in society. What will the future of preservation look like as art becomes more central in the profession?
This symposium convenes BIPOC artists who integrate heritage – and all its sociopolitical implications today – into their works and explores the intersection between art and preservation.Learn more and see the schedule: https://www.arch.columbia.edu/events/2170-2021-fitch-colloquium-the-art-of-preservation-engaging-and-amplifying-underrepresented-heritage
