Kick the Dust

The Centre is supporting colleagues at Renaisi in their role as the learning and evaluation partner for ‘Kick the Dust’, a £10m grant fund delivered by the Heritage Fund.

What we do

Kick the Dust was named by young people with an aspiration to ‘stir up heritage’: twelve grants of between £500,000 and £1m have been allocated to projects across the UK that will involve more young people in heritage.

The involvement of young people is a key to the design of the programme, from the funding application process through to designing and delivering the projects themselves. As these projects develop, the Centre will be working with Renaisi and HLF to gather learning about the effect of this level of engagement on young people’s involvement and interest in heritage sites and activities.
