Handmade — What is the role of skilled trades in the architecture and the city of today and tomorrow?

Free activity | Online

Essential to both maintaining our built heritage and creating new high-quality architecture, tradespeople and their skills are becoming increasingly rare. While interest mounts in local products that are grown or made by hand here, what role will these talents play in the next national policy on architecture and land development?

  • France Girard, Manager, Architecture and Heritage, Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec
  • Jocelyn Groulx, Director of the  Québec Religious Heritage Council

Presented on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at noon.

Duration: 1 hour
The event will be broadcast live on Zoom and on the Museum’s Facebook page.
