Pilot Project

Community Heritage Scotland

Community Heritage Scotland began as a pilot project in 2018 which aimed to explore the ways in which people work and engage with heritage in their communities, while also aiming to bring about positive change in a sector which is not without its challenges.

The pilot project was a partnership between the consultancies of Ergadia Museums and Heritage and Northlight Heritage, in collaboration with the Museums Galleries and Collections Institute at the University of St Andrews.
