Hidden Heritage Project Stakeholder Consultation

We are currently scoping the interest in a Hidden Heritage Project. This project would increase engagement between children and under-represented heritage, using this to improve wellbeing, skills and interests.

What do we mean by heritage?

We take a very broad view on this. If you represent a specific cultural group, we’d like to hear from you. If you represent young people from an area that has stories to tell, we’d like to hear from you. Heritage means different things to different people, so if you feel that your community has memories that can be shared or traditions to be celebrated, then a Hidden Heritage Project might be of interest to you.

What might a Hidden Heritage Project involve?

We would like to engage local voluntary, community and faith sector youth groups who use heritage projects as a way of improving young people's lives. We are currently exploring ideas around how to do this, including:

Run a grants programme to fund local projects promoting better engagement with heritage and celebrating different cultures;

Bring together these organisations in a Community of Practice to identify and share best practice, identify young people and communities who are particularly disengaged with heritage or whose heritage is under-represented or marginalised;

Promote greater engagement amongst children and young people who currently feel/are excluded from heritage activity by empowering them to develop their own ideas and projects;

Increase the resilience and sustainability of local organisations

We would be really grateful if you could spend 5 minutes completing this short survey.
