Future Heritage

The Future Heritage theme recognises heritage as a rapidly evolving field of contemporary cultural practices. It has a focus on research that maps and describes changing forms of practice and participation, and on practical collaborations with cultural institutions and communities that conserve and enliven tangible and intangible heritage, build new forms of heritage and create new knowledge.

Under the banner of Future Heritage, our projects each engage with cherished archives and collections, communities and digital media, to enchant, explore, critique and understand the past/ present entanglements of people, places and things.

Future Heritage aims to make an early and important impact on scholarship, heritage practice and cultural policy, recognising the relationship between heritage, community wellbeing and sustainability.
