Heritage Projects

Daisi’s models of engaging young people in heritage through the arts.

Daisi has many examples of working in partnership to engage young people in heritage through the arts. Our project models have spanned a wide range of locations, and a diversity of partners including voluntary sector partners, and those from culture, heritage, formal and non- formal education sectors, and wider community and inter- generational groupings including older people and families.

This leaflet brings together a few examples of recent Daisi partnership projects with a young people and heritage engagement focus. Through these projects Daisi has developed its experience of bringing young people into the co-creation process of exploring heritage through the arts.
