A 1-day event exploring regeneration through community-led culture and heritage. 

Reimagining High Streets is an exciting 1-day event for those working in the arts, heritage and local authorities to explore how community-led culture and heritage activities can support place-shaping and regeneration. 

The event will draw on the learning from the High Street Heritage Action Zones cultural programme, Historic England‘s four-year programme to revitalise more than 60 high streets. There will also be speakers from other organisations working with communities to shape local places.  

Hear from a wide variety of individual projects as they present the successes and challenges of delivering community-led engagement with culture and heritage and the impact this work has on local regeneration.   

The day will be made up of panel discussions, interactive workshops and market-place style presentations with speakers from across arts and heritage. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Network with others working in similar fields
  • Reflect on your own work
  • Seek practical hints and tips
  • Contribute ideas to help projects develop the work further

The event is free, however, booking is essential.
