History for Change conference

Event Details

  • Event date: 26/10/2018
  • Venue: The Lit & Phil, Newcastle upon Tyne

Join us at this special one day conference to hear about innovative and groundbreaking community heritage projects that are changing the way that we think about local history. Find out about projects that are investigating history to ask questions about the present, provoke discussion about politics and society, bring communities together and challenge preconceptions about our shared past.


Come along to hear and contribute ideas on what the exploration and understanding of local history can offer to communities to help them come together and overcome challenges.


Hear from a lineup of speakers representing charities, museums and arts organisations who will talk about projects uncovering new histories in areas ranging from mental health to law and order, education to community identity.


Conference places are free but booking is essential. Free lunch and refreshments will be provided for all attendees. To register for this event please visit historyforchange.eventbrite.co.uk
