This seventh Heritage Alliance Heritage Debate will explore perceptions of the word ‘Heritage’. Is it a help or hindrance in attracting political recognition or private investment or do outdated connotations perpetuate the myths that heritage is a brake on growth or just a warm bathe in nostalgia?
ComRes, the leading research consultancy, will launch a new snapshot of public perceptions of the word ‘heritage’. Speakers from the media and development industry will discuss perceptions and misconceptions from their own experience. The aim, with the help of the audience, is to find ways to bring the wider public understanding in line with contemporary thinking of our heritage as a dynamic, strategic resource of benefit to government, industry, communities and individuals.
This event is free but registration is essential
