Archaeology Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Council on Archives are delighted to announce that tickets for Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference are now available. In its ninth year, the conference offers an opportunity for community heritage groups to gather, share experiences, celebrate their achievements, learn from each other and discuss, debate, and plan for the future.
The conference theme this year is Making Places, Connecting People. Your very involvement in local heritage plays a vital role in defining and celebrating your community, your place. Moreover, by involving your friends and neighbours, you are building and strengthening connections that bring benefits far beyond the aims of individual projects. These are also priorities for government – to help communities discover, cherish and protect the richness that is our heritage, right across Scotland. You are invited to share your experiences, thoughts and plans in the annual celebration that is Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference!
This year it will be returning to the Birnam Arts and Conference Centre in Perthshire (https://www.birnamarts.com/). Conveniently sited close to the A9 and just a five-minute walk from the railway station, this marvellous building offers an exciting range of spaces for the conference and is fully accessible to those with disabilities. With your help, it will be a memorable day of talks, workshops and exhibitions, hearing from you about your involvement with community heritage. As usual, volunteers and members of community groups have priority in the main plenary sessions, but there are also plenty of opportunities for the professional sector to add their skills and energy to the event.
