THE ROOF FOR ANNA

Join us on a weekend trip to the border region and get involved in the crucial moment of the restoration of St. Anne's Chapel in Olešná. This important historical monument in the former Sudetenland, designed by Antonín Victor Barvitius, has been facing the ravages of the weather for years. Together we will prepare it for roof repairs. 

With our help, the chapel will be ready for the next stages of restoration that will restore it to its former glory and bring it one step closer to becoming a center of culture, art and gathering. 

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO

We'll be flexing all our muscles carrying bricks, handling old beams and working the woody debris around the chapel. If you have a fear of heights or prefer to be on the ground, we'll choose a job that suits you.

You don't need any previous experience or skills to get involved - this event is open to anyone who is keen to put their hand to work!

ACCOMPANYING PROGRAMME

We will tour the chapel including its surroundings and learn about the significance and history of the site. Evenings will be spent getting to know each other and sharing stories from work and life.
