Speak: Rebranding Historic Preservation, Downtown Arts Center

March 6, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Rebranding Historic Presentation Symposium takes place at the Downtown Arts Center on March 6, from 9 am – 3 pm.

” “Rebranding Historic Preservation,” will explore some of the ways in which preservation thought and practice has become embedded in the work of an ever-expanding range of allied fields.  Far from being a stand-alone movement, historic preservation supports, and is supported by, community-based economic developers, affordable housing advocates, the heritage foods movement, and architectural undertakings not typically thought of as “preservation.”
9:00 am – Dr. Andrew Hurley

Dr. Hurley is a professor at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, and is the author of Beyond Preservation: Using Public History to Revitalize Inner Cities.  His work helps to develop a “genuinely inclusive urban revitalization” where urban history becomes a tool for organic, place-based community development.

10:30 am – Rob Locke

Mr. Locke is the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity, Louisville.  While Habitat is not a preservation organization, its work often takes place in the same urban neighborhoods that contain historic houses in need of rehabilitation.  Habitat Louisville has a history of collaborating with the preservation community when possible, while fulfilling the organization’s mission of producing quality affordable housing.

12:00 – 1:15 pm – Break for lunch

1:15 pm – John-Mark Hack

Mr. Hack is co-founder of Marksbury Farm Market, a local leader in the heritage foods movement.   A Woodford County resident, Mr. Hack has worked in Kentucky agriculture for over 20 years, and established the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy in 1998 during the administration of Governor Paul Patton. He also served as the first President of the Kentucky Tobacco Settlement Trust Corporation and the first CEO of the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund.

4:00 pm  – Hugh Trumbull

Mr. Trumbull is a principal at the architectural firm of Kohn Pedersen Fox.  Through KPF, Mr. Trumbull has been involved with a range of adaptive reuse projects, including the recently completed LEED-Platinum certified Centra Metropark project in Iselin, NJ.  Mr. Trumbull’s lecture will be co-sponsored by the University of Kentucky College of Design Lectures and Exhibitions Committee.”
