AIA New Hampshire is pleased to host this year's AIA New England Conference and Awards Program. Join us for a fall weekend of community, inspiration and celebration. Come find out why Portsmouth has landed on so many lists of "top destinations" and "most liveable towns." If you haven't been here in a while, this will not be a repeat trip.

We will gather at 3S Artspace on Friday evening for an opening reception and awards celebration. 3S Artspace is an alternative multidisciplinary arts organization that presents and supports artists and performers and their work in Portsmouth.

On Saturday, we will convene at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Portsmouth for a series of workshops focused on the theme of Resilience. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided for participants. In the afternoon, you can choose from a number of interesting tours: Bridges of Portsmouth, Portsmouth Above and Below or Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Or, you might be the lucky raffle winner of the Seacoast Helicopter Tour during which you will see it all from 1,000 feet in the air.
