In 2019, we carried out 12 Community Heritage Scotland Research Workshops funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. These took place around Scotland culminating with an international conference held in November 2019. The funding partners are the Museums, Galleries and Collections Institute (MGCI) of the University of St Andrews, the National Library of Scotland, and Ergadia Heritage.
One of the things everyone wanted to see was a good working relationship with national heritage bodies, alongside the grassroots setting the agenda for the new network. The report is now circulating through Historic Environment Scotland, and is getting both a good and very interested reception so far, which is great!
