A unique programme broadening understanding of diversity and helping people to develop inspirational heritage projects.
The website reports on The Heritage Alliance’s two-year diversity programme which completed in August 2008.
The programme ran across five regions, bringing together smaller voluntary heritage and helping seniors find housing & facilities as well as building confidence in working together to broaden their retirement.
It encouraged creativity, informal learning, networking and mutual understanding. Five projects were developed and supported as exemplars.
Embracing Difference, funded by English Heritage, has been a unique and groundbreaking achievement: hugely creative and yet very practical.
It has fulfilled one of The Heritage Alliace’s key objectives to increase the capacity of member organizations.
This programme has challenged us all to extend our commitment to diversity and shown the many innovative and different ways in which it can be done.
The website is designed to help heritage organizations and community groups connect to each other and to provide support for heritage projects which involve, inspire and excite people.
