Young Heritage Leaders

We’re looking for young people (16-26) to join this group of young leaders to help us shape our projects, run events and change how heritage works with young people (we’re ambitious). If you’re interested in a career in the arts, or natural conservation or the museum services, or maybe you don’t know yet but definitely want to be part something where you can develop your leadership skills and figure it out, then we want you. 

As part of this group you can join masterclasses, be part of our decision making on things like branding and which artists we hire, run events, apply to work at heritage organisations through our traineeships and more… Find out more

Grounded Challenges

We set the challenge and you show us how creative you can be. Have you ever heard of Nature ASMR? Or used a mirror to create a portal to the sky?

Whether you’re into crafts or photography; have a lush garden or live in a tiny flat; have a bunch of spare time or want to quickly do something fun and creative, we’ve got a challenge for you.
