How is history mobilised in place-making strategies today? How is heritage used to regenerate spaces, drive economic development or shape community identities? How does the past enrich and shape a sense of place? And what limitations, lines of exclusion, or challenges should we be alert to? Whether you’re a researcher, practitioner, or interested in your own community, join the panel in conversation with Catherine Clarke, IHR Professor in the History of People, Place and Community, for a critical discussion of history in place-making strategies today. 

This event also launches the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community, with a wine reception. Please join us to celebrate!
