How is the preservation enterprise engaging, shaping, learning from, and capitalizing on the new landscape of urban data in order to forge evidence-based research, co-produce knowledge with communities, and inform policy agendas?
The Urban Heritage and Data in the 21st Century symposium and the subsequent publication explores the following themes that can inform the next generation of preservation policy:
- The power of data collection and management
- Data as civic engagement
- Building data specific to building preservation policy
- Challenging and substantiating narratives through preservation
- Informed decision-making and evidence-building
- Using preservation to tell better stories and ask better questions
