Museums foreveryon­e


A project aiming to engage young people from Perth with their heritage will look for ways to make them feel represente­d at Historic Environmen­t Scotland (HES) sites.

As part of the Historic Environmen­t Support Fund worth £104,888, just over £10,000 has been awarded to Children in Scotland (CiS) for a project to engage young people with the heritage sector.

Working online and in small socially distanced groups, CiS will consult 45 young people from Perth, Stirling and Dumfries about how to make the historic environmen­t more inclusive and equally accessed by all.

The groups of young people will identify how best to attract, engage and retain other young people and will develop art, theatre, media and music.

Chris Ross, senior policy, projects and participat­ion officer at Cis, said:“Our Living Museums project will work with young people aged 14-21 ensuring they feel represente­d, welcomed, engaged and included within the museum environmen­t.
