The Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference is right around the corner! It’s not too late to sign up for this amazing opportunity to learn from your fellow preservationists about great things that are happening around Mississippi and how to make preservation happen where you hang your hat. Highlights include:
- A stellar group of speakers, including noted preservation architect Belinda Stewart, on Monday, June 9. Architects receive one unit of continuing education credit for Belinda’s presentation, thanks to AIA Mississippi.
- Tupelo’s first PechaKucha, with speakers Malcolm White, Tom Howorth, Dan Camp, Jennifer Baughn, Stella Gray Bryant Sykes and Representative Steve Holland on Monday, June 9 at the uber-cool J.J. Rogers Building. And if all these great minds are not a good enough cause to come out, the event will benefit the recovery efforts of the historic Joyner neighborhood. Throw in some tunes by the Blues Doctors, suds from the Yalobusha Brewing Company and a Bo-Saam spread by Chef Mitchell at the Neon Pig Café-how could you miss this?
- The opportunity to give a rousing round of applause to forty-nine steadfast community leaders, organizations, elected officials, architects and developers who are making preservation happen in our great state at the Heritage Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, June 10.
