January’s theme is “RISE”: join us on Friday to discuss it over breakfast with Barbara Tomasoni, Restorer.
This month, we will discuss the theme ‘RISE’ as it relates to rebirth and revival in the world of cultural heritage and beyond. How often do we look up when we walk down the street? Historic buildings, monuments, and churches have been here long before us—and will remain long after us as the reminders of an era, recounting the history of a place and of those who built and inhabited it. The duty of restorers is to preserve and protect this history, to give these places and artefacts a new lease of life, giving them a ‘voice’ through restoration. Barbara Tomasoni will tell us how restoration means continuing to promote a cultural rebirth in each of us, whether we are aware of it or not.
