Industrial Heritage Conference 2015: Reviving Places by Re-using Industrial Heritage

December 1, 2015 - December 2, 2015

Following a campaign by a network of organisations involved in the conservation, protection, promotion and conversion of historic industrial sites, the Council of Europe has declared 2015 as European Industrial and Technical Heritage (EITH) Year.

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), Historic England (HE) and The Prince’s Regeneration Trust (PRT) are organising an event to tie in with EITH 2015.

The central theme is re-use, with a focus on developing new uses for vacant, at-risk industrial buildings by connecting them to creative industries businesses, developers, investors, other commercial opportunities and community-led/not-for-profit organisations.

Community Group rates: 1 day £50/2 day £80


Travel bursaries are now available for qualified groups!

The goal for the Reviving Places by Re-using Industrial Heritage Conference is to bring together as many people as possible, and they do not want costs to be a barrier to your attendance. They can now offer £100 and £75 bursaries to eligible individuals and groups.
