Engaging with hard-to-reach communities and uncovering hidden histories are essential activities for today’s arts and heritage organisations.

The Carnival Archive Project is holding a seminar to show you how to tackle this sometimes daunting task with confidence, by offering practical advice, case studies and reassurance on how your organisation can increase the diversity of the communities with which you engage.

Seminar attendees will be helped to work out their barriers to engagement and how to work around them. There will plenty of opportunities to discuss obstacles and receive practical advice from our speakers.
