Experience the history, culture and spectacular landscapes of the area with a Friday morning tour to the High Desert Museum, A6 Print Shop and Gallery, and the Old Mill District. A special screening of Heathens and Thieves will be shown Friday evening with co-director Megan Peterson present to provide historical background and take questions.

Fabulous break-out sessions and some incredible panels are planned to make your time spent at conference well worthwhile.
