23-24 February 2024 Parkside Building, Birmingham City University B4 7BD
Aim of the course If you work in a historic building, site or landscape you will want and need to share that asset with lots of other people. In order to do this you will need to market it and interpret it. This two-day course will aim to cover some of the essentials of marketing the heritage as well as to explore a variety of interpretation methods for historic properties and environments. It will look at Black Heritage and contested heritage. It will also cover disaster management in relation to historic buildings - how to plan in advance for fire and flood in order to lessen possible consequences without harming the historic building in the process.

There are also more practical two-day workshops on lime, stone, timber, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, ceramic building materials, twentieth-century building materials, building recording, historic interiors, traditional estate management and canal heritage. The hands-on workshops will include visits to working sites such as the Black Country Living Museum and Wightwick Manor near Wolverhampton.
Who are they for? They are for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of the management of the historic environment in a particular area. Or for those who want to refresh their skills. Or for those who want to do a short course as a taster before deciding whether to commit to a longer post-graduate programme.
