About the Project

As part of our senior thesis at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, my thesis partner and I found a topic that merged our interests in art and Philippine history.


The Problem

Art conservators in the Philippines have always been dedicated to their craft, but the everyday Juan would not know that taking care of paintings, statues, historical fabrics, and other culturally significant items is a real profession. In order to advocate for this and empower those interested in heritage conservation, we created Project Minamana.

The Solution

We interviewed official conservators from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to explain exactly what conservation is, and what techniques are involved, and how anyone could do at home for their art pieces, family heirlooms, or even sentimental items.

These were made into a 3-part educational series with illustrated graphics, along with article versions of the topics.
