Industrial Heritage #Heritage Chat

The March #HeritageChat was led by Dr Nicola Palmer from the Doctoral School of Sheffield Hallam University. It focused on ‘industrial heritage’ covering sustainable management, reliance on volunteers, modes of engagement (from urban exploration to steampunk), and existing and potential future collaborations between industrial heritage sites and industrial bodies – and more!

#HeritageChat: Diversity in the heritage sector

One year on from the workshop on Diversity in the Historic Environment Sector, Heritage 2020 revisited the topic for the February #HeritageChat. The discussion aimed to assess changes in practice and priorities in the past year. It explored the place of the concept of class in conversations about diversity, barriers to employment and participation, and how the sector can move forward in addressing diversity issues. Contributors shared ideas for future initiatives and examples of best practice within and outside the sector. The session was run by @HeritageChat and The Heritage Alliance @Heritage_NGOs.

#HeritageChat: Heritage and Evaluation

The first #HeritageChat of the new year was held on the 18 January, on the theme of evaluation. It explored heritage sector uses of existing evaluation data, shared guidance, resources and ideas for greater buy-in, and asked whether there is scope for a shared evidence base. The topic of evaluation is a common thread in all of Heritage 2020’s work, but is especially relevant to the activities of the ‘Public Engagement‘ and the the ‘Constructive Conservation and Sustainable Management‘ working groups. The session was run jointly by @HeritageChat and by ERS Research & Consultancy @ERS_Limited.

It explored the issues affecting historic high streets and town centres, shared examples of where heritage contributes to economic health, discussed how heritage can be used inclusively in towns with diverse populations and questioned how the heritage sector can create synergies with the Green Infrastructure agenda and contribute to urban ‘place-making’.

#HeritageChat Twitter Poll – Outcome

Thanks to all who took part in our Twitter poll on the proposed #HeritageChat! The overwhelmingly positive response means that we are now able to take this forward. #HeritageChat grew from a desire to create more opportunities for the sector to contribute to Heritage2020 activity. As such, we’re still taking suggestions for topics, as well as receiving expressions of interest in running the monthly sessions. For more details, visit our #HeritageChat homepage, which outlines the project in full.

#HeritageChat

Heritage2020 is seeking views on a proposed monthly Twitter chat, #HeritageChat. Instead of a traditional consultation exercise, this year we want to create more opportunities for the sector to contribute directly to the Heritage2020 themes and working group activities. From 10th-16th August, Heritage2020 is running a Twitter poll to see how many people would take part in a #HeritageChat. To learn more about how #HeritageChat might run see Heritage 2020 Get Involved.
