Building Community Resilience Through Heritage

Adrian Evans and Karina Croucher

Adrian Evans and Karina Croucher, from the School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences at the University of Bradford, will talk about their work with communities and how conversations about heritage can support resilience.

Karina will talk about death and dying, and how engaging with historical objects that portray death can help us talk about difficult subjects. Adrian has used photographs of historical sites to construct immersive realities for displaced people, and will show how these tools can prompt conversations that can help people deal with their difficult circumstances.
