Description

I co-organised this two-day Wiles Colloquium on Heritage and Wellbeing with invited participants from a range of UK-wide heritage organisations (eg Director of National Trust NI; Head Curator Hillsborough Castle; owner and CEO, Castle Leslie; Director Historic Houses England) and external universities (eg University of Durham, UCL, Newcastle University; Trinity College Dublin). The purpose was to explore the relationship between heritage and wellbeing and to encourage collaborative research in this area between academics and heritage and public history practitioners.
