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. This workshop series is part of a multi-tiered education initiative that will 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. 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.

Space will be limited at many of the sites, so the workshops will be videotaped and available via our YouTube channel for future reference.
