In 2015, the National Lottery Heritage Fund recognised that young people were underrepresented as audiences, participants and volunteers in the heritage sector. In response they developed ‘Kick the Dust’, an investment of £10 million in 12 projects selected by young people that bring together heritage and youth organisations.
The Centre is working alongside Renaisi as learning partners on Kick the Dust and you can read about what has been learned so far in the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s latest blogs on involving young people in heritage and what we learned in year two. Also look out for #kickthedust on social media.
Our monthly newsletter collects news, events, research and blogs from the Centre, our networks and practitioners and organisations around the world. Sign-up, and read our previous newsletters, here.
