How should heritage decisions be made?

York: What has heritage ever done for us?

We’ve pulled together in this booklet both an overview of the York strand of the ‘How should heritage decisions be made?’ project and the proceedings of the ‘York: What has heritage ever done for us?’ event ran in June 2015 as part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Connected Communities Festival.

We’re using all the thinking and ideas shared here to inform a pilot project in November – an idea hatched during the June event – called York and Housing: Histories Behind the Headlines which is exploring how participatory production of histories of urgent issues facing York can enrich public debate and local democracy. The York and Housing Histories Behind the Headlines project has come ot of a partnership between the University of Leeds, York Explore Libraries and Archives and York Past and Present.
