DONATE TO PROTECT OUR PAST
"ONCE GONE, LOST FOREVER"
The coastal communities of the Cape and Islands region have been undergoing extraordinary development, which often comes in the form of the destruction and loss of historic homes and buildings. Our goal is to produce short films that tell the stories of historic and culturally significant buildings and examine the agents of change that disconnect people from their environment and ultimately from each other when they are torn down. We are losing historic buildings at an unprecedented rate. Once a historic structure is gone, it is lost forever. Knowing the power of media, these films will be an effective means to arouse attention and stir a trend of prevention.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Demolition represents a repudiation of our cultural and historic resources, making streetscapes look monotonous.
