Neon Speaks 2020

online home edition


After a few months of shelter-in-place,  it is obvious that Neon Speaks  2020 should temporarily move to an online platform. We know that social distancing during  COVID-19 is the way to go:

  • Neon Speaks is all about camaraderie, networking, sharing experiences, and movement-building—which happens best  in person—we will endeavor to bring that spirit to your home screen.
  • The upside of an online festival is the potential to bring together a larger group of preservationists, including those who can't easily traipse across a bridge, hop on a plane, or cruise down the highway to San Francisco and join the crowd of like-minded people.
  • There will be a schedule of morning and evening sessions to accommodate multiple time zones.
  • This year the sessions will be spread over two weekends to avoid marathon screen fatigue.
  • Stay tuned for details, including announcements of symposium speakers, exhibitors, behind-the-scenes tours, virtual open mic, film screenings, and author interviews.
  • Early Bird registration begins next month, all-event passes will be available by donation.
