Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference showcases community-led projects across Scotland and supports people as they explore their connection to the past. The event is open to anyone with an interest in history, heritage or archaeology - thought no experience of this is necessary! - and includes excellent talks, interactive workshops, inspirational displays and stimulating networking opportunities.
Community volunteers' talks are the core of this event, and we will feature lunchtime options such as an Aberdeen Women's Heritage Trail mini-walk, the chance to explore the archives or to visit the new Window Shopping Exhibition.
The afternoon session will focus on oral histories, including some Aberdeen-based speakers and workshops on how to record and store memories. This could be invaluable to anyone thinking of starting an oral history project - or dealing with the material they have already generated.
If you would like to exhibit your own recent research, community project or local history documents, please feel free to contact us to reserve a display space (tables provided).
Our One Minute Mayhem slot gives you all the chance to stand up and make your own contribution on anything heritage-related (as long as you can do it in 60 seconds!)
