The public is invited to join the Rhode Island Historical Society and Newport Historical Society fora RHODI presentation on the Newport Historical Society’s History Space Initiative on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 10am, at the Newport Historical Society Resource Center, 82 Touro Street, Newport, RI.
“Learn about the Newport Historical Society’s popular History Space initiative which supports the field of public history through education and demonstration,” the Newport Historical Society writes in a press release about the event. “History Space events are high-quality living history programs which include reenactments, traditional trade and craft demonstrations, and workshops. Elizabeth Sulock, Curator of Living History for the Newport Historical Society, will discuss History Space and share case studies for past events such as What Cheer Day: Life After the Gaspee Affair and After Dark: Browns, Bad Boys and Boudoirs—both of which were presented in partnership with the Rhode Island Historical Society”.
Elizabeth Sulock has worked at the Newport Historical Society since 2008 in roles varying from marketing, development support, serving as a first person historical interpreter and, more recently, organizing the Society’s History Space initiative, according to Newport Historical Society. She has presented at the ALFAM New England conference, the Rhode Island Statewide Historic Preservation Conference, History Camp Boston and the First-Person Interpreter’s Conference. In her spare time, Elizabeth hand sews historical costumes and volunteers at living history events across the region.
