North West Branch – Improving Accessibility – Overcoming the Barriers to Heritage

10 October

£100

Heritage plays a key part in how we define our identity and, at a time of great debate over ideas of local and national identity, making heritage assets more accessible to a broader range of people is of great importance. Improving access to heritage can help promote a stronger sense of belonging and understanding of a place as well as stimulating wider public benefits such as improved health, wellbeing and job creation. Informed management of heritage assets can help to sustain and enhance those assets so that they become better used and valued both now and in the future.

The conference will explore these interrelated themes, focussing on how to successfully overcome the accessibility barriers that can exclude groups from enjoying and experiencing historic buildings or sites or participating in heritage activities. These barriers may be both intellectual as well as physical, and the conference will provide an opportunity to learn of new and innovative approaches to formal and informal learning about, and engaging with, heritage.

The conference will be of interest to planners, architects, developers, amenity societies, and all those who manage and care for the historic environment.
