What has heritage ever done for us? (…and what would we like heritage to do for York?): Community visions for the future of York’s heritage
Saturday, 20 June 2015 from 13:30 to 16:30 (BST)
We invite anyone interested in York’s future to join us to explore what ‘heritage’ might have to do with it.
York is a city known for its heritage.
York also faces certain challenges: for example housing, wages and making the city centre an affordable and easy place to spend time during the day and at night.
How can we think about York’s heritage in ways which help us address these challenges?
How might York’s heritage become a resource that helps us live well together?
We’ll hear from lots of different people about their visions for the future of York’s heritage.
We’ll also work together to make plans. What do you know about York’s history – or the challenges the city faces today – and how can you contribute?
Part of the ‘How should decisions about heritage be made?’ project and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Connected Communities programme.
