APT – National Trust Joint Conference 2020
HINDSIGHT 2020: Conservation, Disruption and the Future of Heritage
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (October 3-7, 2020)
In association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP)


HINDSIGHT 2020 will explore heritage conservation’s disruptive role in a 21st century defined by resource scarcity, climate change and sustainability. In an era seeking heroic solutions, historic preservation provides transformative ideas, highlighting the importance of adaptation, minimal intervention, reversibility and maintainability. While Edmonton is the research, refining and manufacturing heart of the Canadian oil industry, it is also a hotbed of environmental innovation and activism. HINDSIGHT 2020 will be hosted by a vibrant historic city at the very forefront of the climate crisis, one wrestling with its petroleum legacy and the imperative to
transition to a low-carbon future. Building on the success of Ottawa 2017, the Association for Preservation Technology
International and the National Trust for Canada (in association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals) have collaborated again to present HINDSIGHT 2020. Architects, engineers, planners, craftspeople, policy makers, preservationists and heritage volunteers will come together to share the best in technology, policy and techniques for conserving and renewing heritage buildings, communities, engineering works and landscapes. North America’s northern-most metropolis, Edmonton is a richly layered heritage place offering
much as an urban laboratory. The city is a traditional meeting ground and home for many Indigenous Peoples – including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Nakota Sioux and Métis. From a pivotal fur trade centre in the 18th century, it became Alberta’s capital in 1905 and is now a
provincial hub for education, industry and culture. Edmonton’s captivating mix of cultural heritage includes heritage districts, diverse places of faith, industrial sites and icons of the early modern era. These, along with Edmonton’s spectacular river valley and the nearby Ukrainian
Cultural Heritage Village – a Canadian leader in conserving vernacular buildings and craft techniques – provide an ideal setting to inspire collaborative conversation throughout the conference.
