UEA Research for Community Heritage Ideas Bank: starting with your idea
University of East Anglia
The Research in Community Heritage Ideas Bank project is about bringing academics from the University of East Anglia and local communities together to support one another in finding out more about community heritage.
We want to find out what local communities are interested in researching, and how we can help you to get started.
Do you have stories about your town or village? Would you like to find out more about the history and heritage of your community? Do you have memories that you’d like to share and preserve for future generations?
Submit your idea for a community heritage project to our Ideas Bank, and we can help you develop your idea into a bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
About the Project
The Research for Community Heritage project draws together a team of researchers from the University of East Anglia who have considerable experience of working with community groups, as well as the wider academic network at the University. Supported by Community University Engagement (CUE) East, UEA’s community engagement team, the project seeks to make links between researchers and communities to come up with new ideas for projects investigating local heritage.
Who is working on the project?
The project team includes a number of academics from the Faculty of Humanities, whose expertise includes British history and archaeology from the prehistoric period to the Cold War, historic landscapes and buildings and local and regional history.
We are working with a range of community partners who have extensive experience of community heritage, including the Norfolk Rural Community Council, Poppyland Publishing, The National Trust, Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum, Norwich HEART (Heritage, Economic and Regeneration Trust) and the Centre of East Anglian Studies. Our partners will help us to make links with local communities, and provide advice throughout the project.
