The 2016 Dialogue in Detroit Conference will bring together professionals, decision-makers and academics from America’s Legacy Cities, where long-term population loss and economic restructuring present difficult challenges for the future of astounding historic resources and significant cultural heritage.

The conference will focus on the following areas: Preservation as a Tool, Legacy Cities Today and Tomorrow, Neighborhood Transformation and Preservation and Public Health.

Expert panel discussions will explore innovative work happening in these areas, while a range of exciting sessions will dive deeper into groundbreaking projects that are revitalizing Legacy Cities throughout the country.
