Taliesin Talks—Values Based Preservation: An Introduction

May 14, 2020
Taliesin West

A panel of experts discussed what “Values-Based Preservation” means, why it is important, and what it means to use this type of preservation when caring for “living” historic sites like Taliesin and Taliesin West.

If you missed the first live Taliesin Talks featuring a discussion about Values-Based Preservation, you can watch the video here. We hope you can join us on Facebook Live in the weeks ahead for future Taliesin Talks events.
