Want to bring Keeping History Above Water® to your city?

The conversation that began in Newport is traveling to other vulnerable historic communities across the country. As the threat is more fully understood and new adaptations are developed, there’s always more to learn.

The Newport Restoration Foundation supports Keeping History Above Water conferences and workshops that share creative adaptations and practical strategies for heritage resilience in a changing climate. Host cities take a lead role in shaping the planning committee and conference content, with NRF support in an advisory and project management capacity.
