On Rebuilding Heritage we have been listening to your feedback about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your organisations and businesses. Our programming themes are based on your concerns and requests. We’ll be adding new themes and resources over the course of 2021.

Ways Out Of Crisis

One of the biggest challenges currently facing the heritage sector is the difficulty in knowing exactly what the challenge is. When circumstances, restrictions, and guidance are constantly changing it can be difficult to keep up let alone know how to respond. We cannot predict the future but we want to help you to plan for uncertainty. Our Ways Out of Crisis resources are looking at tried and tested approaches for organising your activity and making the best use of your resources during challenging times.

Finding Time

We all know that it’s important to prioritise but it can be difficult, when we’re under pressure, to get the balance right between the things that we need to keep our organisations going and the things we need to keep ourselves going. In Finding Time we are looking at wellbeing, motivation, and inclusivity. We want to make sure that we recognise these as not just ‘nice to have’ but ‘necessary to have’ and support the heritage sector to implement good working practices in these areas.

Balancing the Books

The heritage sector has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and financial survival is now a key concern for many organisations: those who have seen their revenue streams reduce dramatically or disappear completely in the wake of the disruption. Under the Balancing the Books theme we are bringing together resources that look at managing cashflow and generating income, exploring ways in which you can make the most of your existing financial resources and help you to identify new fundraising opportunities.

Going Digital

Digital communication has taken on a far more significant role within heritage practice than even the biggest advocates could have predicted. Digital technology underpins and facilitates the way we work with our colleagues, the way we reach out to our audiences, and the way we engage with heritage content. There are great opportunities but there is also a lot to learn in order to make best use of them. In Going Digital we are looking at tips and toolkits to make this learning process more productive.
