Join an expert panel to explore the power of engagement with heritage for individual and community well-being

About this event

With an expert panel bringing contrasting experience and perspective to the discussion, join us to discuss the power of engagement with heritage for individual and community well-being.

Leading tonight’s discussion are three masters of collaboration in their respective fields: Ruthanne Baxter has championed the role of heritage across Scotland and beyond and tonight will focus on her Prescribe Culture initiative with the University Edinburgh; Lynsey Gillespie from the Public Records Office of N.Ireland discusses community engagement with archives; and Hannah Ayre, participatory artist with over twenty years experience of creating socially engaged projects throughout the UK, includes reflections on her ‘Lantern Project’ at Silverburn Park in Fife.

Our Talk commences at 6.30pm and is preceded by soft drinks served from 6pm. Our Talks are recorded and we ask you please to let us know if you prefer not to be included in this archive.

This talk is part of Scotland’s first Flax and Linen Festival, September 2021, in Fife. We are delighted to collaborate with Kirkcaldy Old Kirk Trust for tonight’s event. The Festival Hub and Exhibition is also in Kirkcaldy, and events run over each weekend throughout Fife.
