Pilot Project

Community Heritage Scotland

Community Heritage Scotland was a pilot project from 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 project has been 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.

The project has been generously supported by Historic Environment Scotland, with additional funding from Museums Galleries Scotland, Association for Independent Museums, and the University of St Andrews.

The core work of the project was a survey and discussion event, out of which have grown the key documents, found here:
