Cincinnati Preservation Collective (CPC) is an active and growing group dedicated to raising awareness of Cincinnati’s built environment and the need to historically preserve it. With the support of the Cincinnati Preservation Association, CPC started in the fall of 2013 in response to a growing number of demolitions occurring throughout our city. Within Cincinnati, there is much to preserve, especially since we have several historic districts, neighborhoods over 100 years old and nationally-renowned architecture. For the first time in several decades, Americans are returning to cities to live and work. With this happening in Cincinnati, CPC joins other preservationists and community members to advocate for historic preservation in the midst of urban redevelopment.
My role is to make sure that CPC's brand is maintained through our community engagement activities and day to day procedures. Pictured are various examples of creative projects I have developed with CPC including heart bombs, history hunts, Bockfest Parade costumes, and our insignia.
