Here are two fully verified events this week that may be of interest to the Friends of Albright Community. Albright will be featured on one of the panels at the Saving Sacred Spaces Summit on Thursday.
Thursday, March 23 – Saving Sacred Spaces Summit
Join the Young Preservationists Association as we welcome Partners for Sacred Places, The Steeple Project, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and other community leaders to discuss and develop a narrative to help save abandonded and neglected sacred spaces in our region. Our panel of experts will describe how other communities have found new purposes for these architectural gems.
Refreshments will be available as well as a cash bar. $5 donation appreciated.
Friday, March 24 – PAST TENSE | FUTURE PERFECT: Identifying Community Preservation needs in East Liberty & North Side
How do we shape the future of our historic resources in East Liberty and the North Side, two neighborhoods significantly and irreversibly impacted by Mid-Twentieth Century Urban Renewal? Are the vestiges of Urban Renewal worth preserving? How do we protect our communities and their identity?
The Boards of Preservation Pittsburgh and the East Liberty Valley Historical Society, along with moderator Don Carter, FAIA, FAICP, LEED AP, invite you to participate in the discussion of these issues and more.
