Discover Moray’s Great Places project aims to explore how Moray’s rich heritage can be further enhanced through working closely with the arts, cultural and heritage sector to maximise the engagement of the community, in particular younger people, and attract new audiences, participants and visitors. It aims to increase community cohesion and ownership of heritage assets and identify appropriate steps to address inequality by engaging new audiences and highlighting opportunities to further enhance heritage through a range of different media.
This symposium will inspire conversation and create connections between artists, people passionate about heritage and those working in the heritage sector in Moray. We will find out about the Discover Moray’s Great Places project, hear from artists who have delivered outstanding heritage and arts projects, and explore opportunities for creativity to enhance Moray’s rich cultural heritage. Attendance is open to all individuals and groups who are interested in finding out how creativity can be used to enhance our local heritage stories.
