Network Events

learning – discussing – networking

Heritage Development Trusts Spring Gathering

15th - 16th May 2024

Hat Factory Arts Centre, Luton

These two days of lively discussion and exploration are for multi-project heritage trusts that work across a city, county or region and for larger single-site trusts that play a strategic role in their place. The Architectural Heritage Fund’s Heritage Development Trusts project is supporting a group of trusts on a journey that will improve their impact and resilience. This is the first of a series of events organised by Heritage Trust Network and the Architectural Heritage Fund to share the learning beyond the Heritage Development Trusts to a wider group of organisations.


Introduction to Heritage Trust Network

5th June, 3rd July 9.00 - 10.00

What is Heritage Trust Network? Who are our members? What do we do for them? What makes us different from other national heritage organisations? Should your organisation join? Should you recommend people to join? Could you be working in partnership with us? Join this webinar to find out.

These free events (on the first Wednesday of each month) are for people involved in not-for-profit heritage organisations, heritage businesses, local authorities and partner organisations.


Working with Communities to Activate Town Centres

5th June 2024 09:30 - 16:30

Without buy-in from the local community, High Street and Town Centre regeneration is doomed to fail. Join our speakers to find out how they engage communities and what they’ve been doing to attract people and investment to their town centres.

This day conference at Unity Hall in Wakefield, a building that was saved and restored, will include talks and case studies, lunch and a tour of the Art House and the local heritage action zone.


Heritage Carbon Literacy Training

Various dates (2-session course)

Carbon Literacy is a key way for organisations to gain an awareness of the causes and impacts of climate change and an understanding of carbon emissions. It provides a great foundation for individuals, teams and organisations to begin to take steps towards reducing their carbon emissions and become more environmentally sustainable.

The focus of Carbon Literacy is about empowering people to take action. To become certified as Carbon Literate you must pledge to undertake an individual and group action that will help you and your organisation to achieve net zero.
