Resilience, Sustainability and Creativity in Heritage Practice: Addressing Matters of Care
Resilience, Sustainability and Creativity in Heritage Practice: Addressing Matters of Care will be presented by Hanneke Booij, University of Stirling and chaired by Professor Sian Jones, University of Stirling.
My PhD is a collaborative ethnographic research project with the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust. In this PhD, I am investigating how small Scottish heritage organisations with social purpose navigate resilience and sustainability in their daily practices. By framing their mission and strategies in dialogue with the government and funding requirements relating to sustainability, heritage practices become practices of care. These care practices concern people, buildings, collections, memories, stories, and the environment. Small heritage organisations navigate dereliction, marginalisation, and environmental decline aiming to co-produce more connected and hopeful futures.
