Description

Towards a National Collection? Ownership, access and enjoyment in an age of austerity

Scotland’s historic environment, its buildings, gardens and landscapes, monuments and archaeological sites, tells our story as a nation, shapes our present and will (we hope) be handed on to our successors.

Now, in a time of reducing budgets and with a changing institutional landscape, we ask how Scotland might best conserve its most important historic sites. Faced with these pressures, can we learn from conservation practice in other countries and in other fields? We already have national collections for art, for books, for artefacts, amongst others - do we also need a national collection of historic buildings and places?

We invite you to a thought-provoking day (including lunch) at the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh to start this debate. There are limited places at the conference, so do please book as soon as possible.

SPEAKERS WILL INCLUDE:

Karin Gold Cox, National Property Board of Sweden

Duncan Dornan and Alex Maclean, Glasgow Life

Deborah Lamb, English Heritage

Terry Levinthal, The National Trust for Scotland

Aileen McKechnie, Scottish Government

Colin McLean, Heritage Lottery Fund

Guy Morgan, Morgan McDonnell Architects

Joanne Orr, Museums Galleries Scotland

Sarah Troughton, Historic Houses Association

We very much hope that you will be able to come and join the debate.
