Join CR0WD for Women in Deconstruction with Mae Bowley of Re:Purpose Savannah

Join us Monday, April 3, 5:30-6:30pm (EST)

CR0WD Conversations are a monthly virtual speaker series on the benefits of deconstruction and a circular building economy.

Deconstruction is the most sustainable, neighborhood-conscious, and historically sensitive alternative to demolition. Re:Purpose Savannah is a women+ led nonprofit based in Savannah, Georgia, that uses deconstruction techniques to provide material preservation and treat dying structures with dignity. At the city and state level, Re:Purpose Savannah strives to see the development of a Deconstruction Ordinance and forward-thinking solutions for structural removal and the preservation of local history.

Mae Bowley moved to Savannah in 2015. Out of a desire to learn more about the charming and mysterious city, she started taking classes in Historic Preservation and Restoration at Savannah Technical College. When she encountered Emergent Structures (parent organization of Re:Purpose Savannah) in 2018, she fell in love. She was an avid volunteer for six months, and was then hired on as Assistant Executive Director. In 2019 Mae took over as Executive Director.

Join us Monday, April 3, 5:30-6:30pm EST, to hear from Mae about building the women-focused training program at Re:Purpose Savannah.
