Posts Tagged ‘For Them and By Them’

You may remember that I mentioned a few months ago that I am organising a conference at my site about involving stakeholders and communities in interpretation.

I am pleased to announce that registration is now open.  Spaces are limited, so if you’re interested please register as soon as possible.

This is a one-day conference that will take place at Bedwellty House and Park in Tredegar, South East Wales, on Thursday, 13th September 2012.

The conference brings together policy makers, researchers and practitioners to examine current practice and share insights into the challenges and benefits of involving stakeholders and communities in interpretation.  To do so is a requirement of many grants and a policy goal across many public agencies.  But how to go about it? The conference offers a good mix of presentations that look at policy, community engagement standards and practical examples from interpretive practice. Confirmed speakers include Jo Reilly, Head of Participation and Learning at the Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as Amanda Williams of Participation Cymru. There will also be representatives from the site’s stakeholders and the local community to share their views on why stakeholder engagement is important, and how this has worked out at Bedwellty House.

For further information about the conference, either post a comment, contact me on LinkedIn, or email the site at info@bedwelltyhouseandpark.co.uk.

Hope to see you in September!
