Event description
One of three workshops on how to develop worthwhile community engagement activities as part of a National Lottery Heritage Fund application

About this Event

The London Diocesan Fund, in partnership with Islington Museum, has undertaken a dynamic volunteer-led research project based around the building of Holy Trinity Church (renamed the Cloudesley Centre), Cloudesley Square, Islington and the stories of the people who now lie in the Crypt. This project has been generously supported with funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Culture Seeds.

In order to share the leaning from the project and support other churches who want to apply to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the London Diocesan Fund is hosting three FREE legacy workshops across London. These will be based around three different themes: researching records and heritage significance; developing artist and creative projects; and interpreting heritage. All workshops will also cover key topics of community engagement, project visioning, and funding opportunities.

These online workshops will be of interest to congregations who are thinking of applying to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and want to know more about how to develop exciting and worthwhile community engagement activities.

Here you can book for Workshop 2: Art and Heritage

The second workshop will focus on incorporating creativity and the arts into your heritage project.

Presentation themes will include:

  • Art and Heritage: an Overview
  • Establishing Partnerships
  • Artists in Residence
  • Tales from the Crypt: Introducing Art to the Project
  • Art Funding Opportunities
  • Creating your Project
