The Institute for Architectural Studies and Conservation was founded in 1999 as a volunteer committee of the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation. Its mandate is to educate Islanders about the province’s architectural heritage. One of the many activities of the Institute is to offer an annual Architectural Lecture Series.
