English Heritage are really pleased to be in the first cohort of twelve organisations that are being funded by Heritage Lottery Fund to develop a project under their new pioneering Kick the Dust stream. Kick the Dust is a specific pot of money for projects that will involve more young people (11-25) in heritage.
English Heritage are working with a consortium of partner organisations to develop Shout Out Loud, a project that will tell hidden stories though the voice and eyes of young people. In developing and delivering the project we will facilitate young people to shape what that could mean and have a real say in what they want. Initially, we will be focussing the project on 11-16 year olds.
Our consortium members are:
Young Archaeologists Club
National Youth Theatre
