Towns and the Cultural Economies of Recovery Workshop

 The Arts and Humanities Research Council funded Towns and the Cultural Economies of Recovery project invites you to an online workshop on July 13th 2-5pm. In this workshop we will present some of our early findings regarding towns and cultural regeneration and will also host a series of creatively facilitated discussions. Workshop places are limited, so we ask you to please RSVP to – after which we will send you the meeting link and further details.

…Our project…

We are gathering data from local organisations, leaders, and residents in four case study towns to explore the role of culture and heritage in helping towns make plans for their “regeneration” or “recovery”. We will be making recommendations to the Arts and Humanities Research Council about the kinds of research support towns can benefit from in the future.

Please see our website and Twitter (@AndTowns) for further details.

…The workshop…

This is a key element of our research in each case study town, and we would be delighted if you could take part.

The Hereford workshop will take place on July 13th 2-5pm. The workshop will take place on Zoom.

We will be joined by historian David Whitehead, who will present an aspect of his research on Hereford’s history. We will also be joined by creative practitioner Toni Cook and four young people from Hereford (aged 16-25), who will be facilitating elements of the workshop and will be making an audio work artefact in response to the session.
