What Constitutes Heritage And How Does It Affect Our Sense of Belonging?

Join us for an event exploring the intersection of heritage and photography through a youth-led lens. 

Dr Dominique Bouchard, Head of Learning and Interpretation at English Heritage is joined by two young graduates  involved in Photoworks and English Heritage youth engagement programmes, Ellie Turner-Kilburn of Queer History Now, and Martha Wood-Saanaoui, Digital Communications intern at Shout Out Loud.

Together they delve into the duty of cultural organisations in championing multiple narratives, reflect on methodologies that amplify youth voice and explore photography’s role and limitations in capturing untold heritage.

This talk is part of England’s New Lenses, a partnership with English Heritage and part of Shout Out Loud, English Heritage’s national youth engagement programme. England’s New Lenses invites young people to explore their own sense of heritage through photography.  See the gallery of work from England’s New Lenses as part of Photoworks Festival here.

Shout Out Loud is funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick The Dust programme. England’s New Lenses is an additional Kick The Dust activity funded by DCMS through the Youth Accelerator Fund.
