This #WorldHeritageDay, we’re celebrating what young people offer to heritage, and vice versa.
As part of that, we’d like to tell you about Heritage Soapbox – an event that the #Dustkickers, our young Heritage Ambassadors, organised at Hoxton Hall on Tuesday 4 April.
Working alongside fab creative producer Chloe Osborne and the HLF Participation and Learning team, the brilliant Dustkickers took over over the magnificent, mysterious Hoxton Hall in East London, bringing young people and heritage/youth professionals together to share and celebrate the how heritage can support young people to flourish, and the many ways that organisations and practitioners benefit from collaborating with young audiences. Our themes are participation, training and early career employment.
We've a video to share imminently, and there's also a link to the HLF blog about the event, below; and our Dustkickers (and I hope some of the participants!) will also share their reflections from the day.
