#IHBCBrighton2020 and ‘OLD TOWNS : NEW FUTURES’ – New web summaries on content, context, CPD, and more, so sign up for news now

More details are now online on the theme, context and CPD benefits of IHBC’s 2020 Annual School – the institute’s Brighton School on 18-20 June, sponsored  by  the Heritage Collective – when we will explore ‘OLD TOWNS : NEW FUTURES’, and offering potential CPD hours (@20+), career benefits and more. 

The IHBC writes:

Billions of pounds are being invested today to support towns – old and new – as well as their surrounding regions.  Most of that money comes from the UK’s cultural, business and community purses, but often is tied to separate, even contradictory outcomes.

At the same time core heritage funds are more constrained than ever, and the pressures on our making locally valued places sustainable can put those places most at risk.

What can be done by those who care, shape advise on such places actually do to make our towns succeed in the future?

Built and historic environment practitioners and advisers, community leaders, policy makers, investors and funders need to work in unison if we are to make the most of any opportunities.

The IHBC School
The IHBC’s 2020 Brighton School and conference takes a timely and forensic look at how the planning, heritage and related sectors can make the most of the opportunities on offer, help players learn from colleagues and others, and broaden understanding of the drivers, barriers and responses.
