Become a Voice for Heritage
There’s a great opportunity for young people aged between 10 and 20 across England to be involved in a fabulous project in the heritage sector. The project is run by the Heritage Trust Network, of which our friends at The Station in Richmond are members.
Thanks to a grant of £34,063 from the Dulverton Trust in partnership with #iwill Fund, the initiative has the potential to transform the way that heritage organisations work with and engage young people by gaining new insight through the co-creation process and enhance the impact that young people can have on organisations in the heritage sector. The aim is to make heritage more accessible to a younger audience and create the next generation of heritage enthusiasts.
Students will join online-meetings with other young people from across the country to talk about their experiences with heritage and how they can be made better. It is a fantastic chance to have your voice heard and be part of a national project that you can talk about on your CV. The project is due to start on 20th September and there is no charge for being involved. There will also be one in-person meeting where young people from across England will be able to meet – the location will be decided based upon where people live. Funding will be available to support the young people and their parent/carer to travel to the location. Further information is available here.
