Join us to learn about social inclusion and the involvement of vulnerable communities through cultural heritage!

Central Scotland (United Kingdom), a pioneer region in the field of audience engagement via cultural heritage, will host one of our peer learning sessions focusing on regional policies for culture and cultural heritage.


The online peer learning session will enable you to discuss community-driven programmes for local development and social inclusion via cultural heritage and share with other guests how to bring historical heritage sites back to life by involving vulnerable communities.


-        How can a project, such as Rediscovering the Antonine Wall, foster social inclusion by raising awareness and understanding of the value of a historical site, such as Scotland’s largest and most important Roman monument?

-        How can community-driven projects foster urban regeneration as well as audience engagement?

-        How can the arts and culture bring new energies to vulnerable communities and help individuals get active in local goals?

-        How has the outbreak of the pandemic impacted audience engagement strategies and what will it mean, on the long-run, to foster community-led engagement projects?


With Central Scotland, you will have privileged access to the people who have been putting innovative answers to these questions into practice, as well as plenty of time to discuss your own region’s approach.


What’s more, we’ll be examining how such policies can be informed and have impact not just at the local level, but also in collaboration with surrounding regions, and even further afield.

The online peer learning visit taking place 26-30 April, 2,5 hour each morning, and will be composed of a small group of stakeholders and representatives from regions and cities (around 20 participants), allowing for a trusting setting to discuss experiences, provide feedback by experts and build solutions together.

Apply before 10th March using this link to make sure you get one of the last seats.
