The New Citizenship Project

update from The New Citizenship Project:

We realise that the first set of workshops have passed however there are 2 more in October that may be of interest:   

I’m getting in touch about the chance to participate in a series of workshops being run by Historic England and starting this weekend.

To give you some context – Historic England is working with us, the New Citizenship Project, to develop a new public engagement and communications strategy, and they want to co-create it with people interested in history, heritage and the historic environment.

Historic England’s aim is to encourage everyone to shape and champion England’s heritage, and so we are inviting people to share stories of things they’ve done to support historic places, from small, everyday things like championing the local pub, or park, to something big like saving a building from dereliction or demolition. 

The workshops will be a chance to share experiences of what’s already happening to support historic places, what’s inspired that and made it possible, and also to share ideas for what more could be done to inspire and empower people to champion places that matter to them.

The workshops start this weekend and the idea is that participants take part in two workshops either on:

  • Saturday 12th September AND Saturday 3rd October, 10am-12noon


  • Sunday 13th September AND Sunday 4th October, 10am-12noon

If you’re interested in participating or want to find out more please do get in touch!

If you’re not able to join then we’d love to hear your experiences of supporting historic places. You can add your story here –

Thanks very much,

Anna Maria
