Heritage groups and individuals active in the area of heritage are being invited to attend a training day at Cork City Hall. “Training for Cork City Heritage Groups” will take place on the 26th of June in the Millennium Hall.

This day-long workshop will provide training in aspects of heritage such as archiving, community engagement, grants, insurance, public relations & social media. Featuring presentations from practitioners in these areas with panel discussions and Q & A sessions, this event will also feature peer to peer mentoring between heritage groups on various issues such as finding a space, getting published, engaging with the community and organising an event

Virginia Teehan, CEO Heritage Council said: “The Heritage Council is delighted to support this worthwhile training which will help build capacity and create communication networks within the heritage organisations in Cork city. It is hoped that in the long term this project will engender the creation of joint projects, and sharing of resources amongst these Heritage groups”.

Niamh Twomey, Cork City Council Heritage Officer said: “This is a great opportunity for Heritage groups to meet and discuss common challenges and opportunities, and hopefully empower these groups to continue the vital work they do for heritage in the community”
