The perils and payoffs of conserving old houses

Join us at Cockman House for an interactive walk and talk about the challenges and rewards of conserving old houses, and practical elements to consider in the conservation process.

Conservation means all the processes of looking after a place so as to retain its cultural significance. But what are these processes? What are the practical elements to consider?

Join the City of Wanneroo’s Heritage Advisor for an engaging talk, using Cockman House as a case study of ongoing conservation.
