Our talks and presentations are a great way to learn and dialog about architecture, preservation, and the communities in our region and beyond! AARCH has presented talks from Herkimer to Chazy, Big Moose Lake to Diamond Point, and many locations in-between. We also partner with many regional and statewide friends and supporters to deliver presentations and webinars on numerous topics that intersect with historic preservation and our work in communities across the Adirondacks.
If you would like to explore a topic with us, speak on a related subject, or share your suggestions, please contact AARCH. For examples of past talks delivered by AARCH staff, click on this document: Talks and Presentations. Some of these are available by request.
Although these programs are offered free, AARCH asks attendees to consider a donation. Your generosity helps ensure programs like this can keep happening throughout the year. Check out the archives pages below or our YouTube page to watch past webinars.
Rethinking Vacant Historic Adirondack Prisons Webinar Panel
February 15 | 6:00 PM | REGISTER HERE
Sponsored by Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) and John Brown Lives!, this project focuses on currently vacant Adirondack prisons that feature historic buildings, and the communities that emerged in and around those institutions. As the state considers new uses for these storied sites, we bring together multiple perspectives for a dialog on repairing economic health and social well-being involving communities of New Yorkers affected by these institutions. Our discussion will touch on appropriate interpretation and the adaptive use potential in these sites that will strengthen and restore communities.
This webinar panel is free and open to the public thanks to generous funding from a Humanities New York Action Grant.
