Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is suitable for people working or volunteering for small heritage organisations based in England, Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland. We are using the National Lottery Heritage Fund definition of heritage types, which are available here. Organisations may be charities, limited companies, volunteer-run or part of a Local Authority.
We ask that only 1 delegate per organisation applies to attend.
The course will be delivered on Zoom. In order to participate, delegates must have a working internet connection, ideally have a working webcam and must have a working microphone. Both sessions will include a number of template exercises for you to work through – so joining from a laptop or PC is essential.
Please complete the short application form in the ‘Apply Now’ tab. Applications will be open until 12:00pm on Friday 27th November. With up to 20 spaces available, we’ll be looking to ensure that those taking part are those who most need the training content, as well as ensuring that we are offering training to a range of heritage types.
Successful applicants will be informed up to 5 days before the date of the first session and will be sent joining instructions after this date. Should accepted applicants find they are unable to make the workshop nearer the date, we do ask that we are informed as soon as possible, so that the place on this funded training may be offered to another applicant.
