Let's Repair Old Houses & built up wooden patios in Old Town
Description: Today, walking along the Yenping Historical Street, you can see totally 142 decorated historical houses. Most of them were built more than 90 years ago. Century ago Yenping Street was the “downtown”, shops there were busy with visitors, but nowadays, many houses are empty and old. The residents moved with their family to other cities away from Xiluo and Yenping Street became quiet. Because of the "Community Renaissance" movement conducting by the Luoyoung Foundation and local government, the street becomes fabulous! In the past 5 years, we have invited many cultural groups and artists to long stay in Xiluo, and host different performances. We also hosted 5 international work camps which were focused on renovate heritage houses.
Type of Work: During the first week we will restore an old house in the Chu Wei community next to Xiluo. After, we will repair another old house (No.72) on Yenping road & we will clean the garden nearby the local museum.
