Perfect for anyone interested in local history, digital humanities, and the stories of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in Ohio.

About the Presenter

The workshop will be led by Huy Pham, Executive Director, with Asian & Pacific Islander Americans in Historic Preservation (APIAHiP), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting historic sites and cultural resources significant to Asian & Pacific Islander Americans across the country and territories. After receiving degrees in architecture, communication studies, and historic preservation from Ball State University in Muncie, IN and now based in Seattle, WA, Huy is committed to making preservation more accessible and engaging to a diverse audience and committed to promoting sound preservation policies and programs as a socioeconomic and environmental imperative.

The workshop will be supported by Sarah Marsom, a locally-based but nationally-recognized heritage resource consultant, from Columbus, OH. Her work is rooted in the belief that if historic preservation is not accessible, it is neither relevant nor revolutionary. Sarah connects the dots in her heritage work to create a more equitable and inclusive bigger picture, including introducing APIAHiP and Westerville History Museum to each other!
