David Hanna, Associate. Professor of Urban Studies at UQAM, and member of Westmount Local Heritage Council, will present Repurposing Churches: Westmount and Montreal at the Westmount Historical Association on Thursday, February 15 in the Westmount Room at the Westmount Public Library.
Repurposing churches is more an art than a science, as each church is distinct and each project unique. The speaker, former head of Montreal’s Quebec Religious Heritage Council, will present diverse cases of repurposing, chosen for their close adaptation to the original building and the qualities of the project.
Doors open at 6; 30 pm for light refreshments. The lecture will begin at 7 pm. Admission is free for members and $5 at the door for guests.
