Research for Community Heritage - publication launched
A new AHRC publication has been launched to publicise the Research for Community Heritage initiative. Part of the cross-Council Connected Communities programme, the initiative began in 2012 with funding awarded to 21 universities to explore partnerships with community groups interested in applying to the Heritage Fund’s ‘All Our Stories’ programme. Universities were encouraged to hold open days, to reach out to community groups in their towns, cities and regions and give specialist input to groups developing a bid to the HLF.
Soon after a second phase of the project began when groups which had been successful in their HLF bids joined together with AHRC funded researchers to undertake collaborative projects. In total, the initiative was responsible for collaborations spanning a wide range of community and academic interests, from music, the environment, history, archaeology, health, multimedia, oral history, archives, transport and many more, through some 150 projects, involving 21 universities and Research Organisations, and across all regions of the UK.
