A new online digital resource centre
Three teams from Arts Marketing Association, University of Leeds and The Heritage Alliance will work together to research and answer the heritage sector’s 100 most pressing digital questions. Answers will be provided in a range of free online learning resources.
Topics will include digital engagement, creating content, recovery planning and digital leadership. The resource centre will launch in February 2022.
We have funded eight networks to support communities of practice to pool resources and expertise around particular heritage areas. The networks will open up heritage topics to a wider range of people, bringing new understanding and increased relevance.
Learning from their experiences will be made available to the sector.
