Heritage. Who owns it? How do we use it? How do we change it?

Hacking Heritage returns, now under the PPS umbrella. This one-day, participant-led gathering is open to anyone with an interest in exploring questions about community history, heritage, and preservation together with neighbors. Pop-up conversations invite questions and debate about how and why we protect, interpret, manage, and market our cultural heritage that may be uncomfortable, provocative, critical, or, as one of our steering committee members put it, just plain weird. It is a place to gather and talk together about things like experimental preservation, marginalized stories, historic houses, monuments, sites of conscience, and digital heritage. This year, Hacking Heritage will be held in Smith Hill, and we invite proposals that address histories, issues, and futures of this incredibly rich historic neighborhood.
