Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference 2017 – Call for Papers, Speakers, Displays & Contributions

Historic Environment Scotland and Archaeology Scotland announce a call for contributions to Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference 2017.

Now in its sixth year, Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference is a unique annual event within the UK that offers the opportunity for heritage volunteers and professionals to network, share experiences and create future working partnerships.

To celebrate Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, this year’s conference will be a two-day event, with two key aims:

  • To showcase the exemplar work of community-led heritage in Scotland, the UK and beyond – both of individual projects and of wider initiatives
  • To learn from community-based best practice outside Scotland

We are keen to hear from you about your involvement with community heritage, and this year are inviting contributions from both community volunteers and professionals. The emphasis, as always, will be on providing a forum for networking and the exchange of news and ideas. To get an idea of previous conferences, why not take a look at some of our previous presentations on YouTube.

For more information, please contact the team at or submit an abstract by Tuesday 30th May 2017.
