The Heritage Community Partnership Legacy Workshop was a full day workshop for heritage community partners working with Connected Communities projects. It took place on 15th December 2014 and included thirty-four community partners from twenty-one community groups. The day was facilitated by the Connected Communities Heritage Network on behalf of Professor Keri Facer (Leadership Fellow for the AHRC/RCUK Connected Communities Programme) and Dr Bryony Enright (Connected Communities Researcher) and hosted at the Y Community Theatre (which is not affiliated to a university or research institution). The aims of the day were to explore ideas of legacy and heritage with regards to the projects, and to share feedback on the collaborative relationship with research partners. Community partners were encouraged to share their views through a programme of sessions facilitated by Jennifer Wilkinson, (Director, Goodman Wilkinson Associates) which involved collage, drawing and writing practices, alongside more traditional discussions.
