Aberdeen Heritage Lectures 2024
Location: On line via Zoom

The Trust is delighted to be back for this first of its blended 2024 Aberdeen Heritage Lectures. We are grateful to the Scott Sutherland School at Robert Gordon’s University for its support in 2024. This online event will be transmitted from a live lecture.

The work of Scotland’s Churches Trust

The presentation will explain Scotland’s Churches Trust’s activities and will touch on the challenges faced by church buildings, which are often significant works of architecture and important focal points for communities.

About our speaker:

Dr. DJ Johnston-Smith: DJ is Director of Scotland’s Churches Trust. He is a heritage professional with academic research specialisms in the dislocation and domicide experienced by communities in post-war Edinburgh and the archaeological and historic landscape of the south-west Scottish Highlands.

His life-long passion for Scotland’s built heritage developed during his early years growing-up in the Scottish Highlands and on the island of Islay and was further strengthened during his university studies in Glasgow and Edinburgh. This abiding love of Scotland’s history and heritage has influenced many aspects of his career since, including his time spent as an historical consultant, in local and national politics, as a community activist, and in the service sector, where he spent many years managing some of Scotland’s best-known hostelries.
