Details: A Closer Look at the Built and Natural Heritage of Trinidad and Tobago

The Details: A Closer Look at the Built and Natural Heritage of Trinidad and Tobago Exhibition is the culmination of a Volunteer Photography Project where over three thousand images depicting the built heritage of Trinidad and Tobago were submitted to the National Trust from volunteer photographers in 2015. From the submissions, those selected gave the broadest range of spaces with at least one from each photographer.

The exhibition is divided into four categories:

  1. Heritage Lost
  2. Places of Worship
  3. Private Residences
  4. Public Spaces

The National Trust has also created a Resource Guide from the Details Exhibition that offers student activities and projects for learning about heritage sites and historic architecture. This Resource Guide is on sale for forty dollars at the Trust office and also available through the post. It contains a glossary of 28 architectural terms as well as lesson plan suggestions that are in keeping with the national curriculum for Visual Arts, Social Studies, History and Language Arts which can be altered for both Primary and Secondary School students.

The exhibition was displayed at venues around Trinidad and Tobago from 27th March 2017 and ended on the 12th June 2018.

Trinidad venues: Office of the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago, Port-of-Spain Public Library, Sangre Grande Public Library, Arima Public Library, Rio Claro Public Library, Point Fortin Public Library, Couva Public Library and the Eric Williams Financial Complex.

Tobago venues: Scarborough Library Facility, Roxborough Branch Libraries and Charlotteville Branch Libraries and the Tobago Museum.
