Social activists from Nizhny Novgorod are going to hold the Defender of the Architrave Day online event. Activists created this initiative to save works that are massively removed from windows after repairs and thrown into dump sites. Social activists had organized demonstrations and motocrosses dedicated to the action. The organizers reported this to 7x7.

At the online meeting in Zoom, historic preservation activists are going to speak on what future awaits architraves in the XXI century, demonstrate the Edges of Time Objet d'Art, which combines elements of old and modern carvings, say more about the historical works' protection project. The event’s participants are required to use a photo of their favorite architraves as a wallpaper in Zoom.

The Defender of the Architrave Day's inspirer Galina Toropkina, head of the project’s distribution Marina Grigoryeva, historic preservation activist Natalya Antropova, researcher of architectural heritage Nadezhda Zaytseva, designer Anna Chevereva and the Kulturny Sled (‘cultural trace’) All-Russian Competition of Ideas for New Attractions’ curator Yulia Baldina are going to hold the meeting.

The Defender of the Architrave Day Project appeared in Gorodets, Nizhny Novgorod Oblast, on February 23, 2020. Residents Natalya Dukantoni and Galina Toropkina decided to keep the architraves, began to go to dump sites and save unique works.

Within a year since the project started, 50 local residents became participants in the restoration of the architraves, 15 people bought a tour to Gorodets and supported the citizens. Activists have saved more than 60 architraves and launched the Adopt an Architrave Campaign, thanks to which anyone can invest money in the restoration of any of the 12 architraves saved by the residents of Gorodets.

In 2021, the activists conducted an online tour of the museum quarter of Gorodets in honor of the Defender of the Architrave Day. As the historic preservation activists say, they held the event in the most bizarre forms - from architraves demonstrations to a motocross of bikers in their defense.
