The goal of The Cobbler Project was to preserve the roadside cobbler trade through an event featuring a time capsule displaying various artefacts alongside a photo essay journal. The event titled 'Homage & Salvage' was created with the idea of paying homage to the cobblers that salvage our shoes. The event featured a website to spread awareness as well as print advertisements. A journal was created to preserve the trade through interviews, photos and on the ground research, which will, in turn, educate the audience on the traditional trade.
