Ignited! A Celebration of Young People, Place and Heritage
15 September 2022 @ 16:00 - 19:30Free
We will be showing off projects and learning from Ignite Yorkshire where over 3000 young people made 60 Yorkshire projects happen and where we supported practitioner teams to try new ways of working. This ground-breaking work from last five years has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund Kick the Dust programme.
During the afternoon there will be a round table discussion plus a chance to meet the partners, practitioners and young people. Prepare to be astounded, inspired and delighted by the amazing creativity and stories from Ignite Yorkshire. There will then follow a youth-curated social with entertainment and delicious food.
It’ll be fun, informal and we hope you’ll leave inspired, informed and ignited by what can happen if we put young people at the fore and connect with their ideas, passion and fresh thinking around place and heritage.
