Quarterly Care Workshops
Initiated 2019; Ongoing
This workshop series is part of a multi-tiered education initiative to teach people of all ages and backgrounds about the value of the French Quarter’s architecture and proper stewardship of their historic structures through compliance with the Vieux Carré Design Guidelines. The Quarterly Care Workshop series is designed to provide hands-on demonstrations and resources to property owners and caretakers about the nuts-and-bolts of architectural preservation. Maintenance is preservation – and proper maintenance will protect historic structures from untimely deterioration. Join the VCC Foundation as an expert tackles important topics in historic property maintenance and care. Learn best practices for taking care of your property, what you should do, what you should NOT do, and how to identify good and bad work being done by your contractor.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the French Quarter’s cultural, economic, and historical value, as well as to concretely educate people about the nuts-and-bolts of architectural preservation by way of demonstrations and resources to French Quarter stakeholders that directly yield value to the district’s distinctive character. We know not everyone can make it to all workshops, so we make them available via our YouTube channel.
