Preserving the Future: A conversation about architecture, heritage, and the Boissiere House

All are invited to this informal event to talk and learn about the historic Boissiere House (currently threatened), Trinidad's architectural heritage, and the importance of preservation.

Alice Yard will host a variety of multimedia installations with images and stories of this and other historic Port of Spain buildings, as well as a "recording booth" where you can record your own memories of a rapidly changing city, to preserve them for the future. There will also be an open conversation about the social value of preserving all aspects of our cultural heritage; plus information about the campaign to preserve the Boissiere House.

Do you have questions or ideas? Want to volunteer to help the Boissiere House campaign? Are you simply concerned about the ways our city and country are changing before our eyes, and what we are losing? Come and join in the conversation.

Alice Yard, 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain
Friday 22 February, 2008, at 8 p.m.

More details about this event soon.
