Our annual conference is always incredibly popular and allows us to bring together key members form the heritage and sport sectors, along with sharing best practice case studies, providing hands on advice and guidance, and increasing the confidence and knowledge of those wishing to develop sporting heritage activity. This year we are extremely grateful to have the support of the Welsh Government to deliver the conference in Wales.
Our 2019 event will be held at the CC4 Museum of Welsh Cricket in Cardiff. This year our summit will aim to explore the key issues effecting the sector and work together to draw conclusions about how to ensure sporting heritage in the UK is able to grow and thrive. The summit will focus on seven themes:
- What does resilience mean to the field of sporting heritage, how can sporting heritage become resilient, and how can it help to create resilient communities?
- How can sporting heritage help to develop cohesive communities?
- How can sporting heritage help to create more equal communities?
- How can sporting heritage help to create healthier communities?
- How can sporting heritage help to celebrate and share vibrant cultures?
- How can sporting heritage develop prosperity within communities?
- How can sporting heritage increase our knowledge of global responsibility?
Our annual Sporting Heritage Social will take place on the evening of the 23rd October. Delegates will be given a tour of the venue and we will more to the nearby Brewhouse and Kitchen for our evening social and food.
