Are you a certified, card-carrying preservationist? Do you stop to hug historic churches, schools and the occasional water tower? Is Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House your favorite movie? Then this year’s Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference is the place for you.
On June 8, 9 and 10, preservationists from around the state will gather in Tupelo for the Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference to share strategies about how to protect our fragile historic resources and their irreplaceable stories. From the first-ever Pecha Kucha Tupelo festivities, where some of Mississippi’s most creative minds will share their thoughts about saving place to the Heritage Awards Luncheon, where we will celebrate our many preservation victories and the hardworking individuals and organizations that made them happen, it is sure to be an inspiring and engaging event.
