The 12th session of the Chennai Heritage Forum will be held in collaboration with Vaayil, an initiative that is working towards documenting the lesser-known heritage of Tamil Nadu. The team at Vaayil has been tenaciously recording wayward and forgotten structures in the interiors of the state, to ensure that some form of documentation exists. The session will engage in dialogues along these lines and will focus on the need to document and preserve the built heritage that surrounds us.
The session will be free and open to all, and the participants will be guided on simple methods and techniques to adhere to while carrying out the process of heritage documentation. The focus will be on public participation in the documentation of historic structures. The session will also include the participants engaging in an exercise – documenting parts of a heritage structure.
