The “Women in Preservation” virtual speaker series features women from a variety of backgrounds to explore historic preservation in Arkansas, its importance and relevance in today’s world, and ways we can better recruit women and people of color to the field and encourage the preservation of sites associated with underrepresented communities.
The February 9th talk with Mandi Curtwright will focus on her work as director of Main Street Batesville and co-owner of the historic Melba Theater in downtown Batesville.
Upcoming speakers include:

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the United States Congress.
