In light of the recent challenges we've faced in inspiring, organising and convening collaborative projects, the TORCH Heritage Programme would like to reaffirm our commitment to building partnerships, growing expertise and sharing knowledge remotely throughout the coming months. To that end, we are happy to announce our first e-workshop in collaboration with the Oxford University Heritage Network and the Churches Conservation Trust. The event will focus on ‘The Future of the Historic Parish Church’ and will have the form of a web-conference that will take place on 5th May, from 11.00 to approximately 13.30.

This e-workshop will foster discussions among a range of academics and heritage specialists to identify and prioritise potential areas of collaboration in the form of research and knowledge exchange projects focusing on the future of the parish church. The aim is to build a community of academics interested in working with the CCT from across the University. The workshop will be co-convened by Peter Aiers (Chief Executive of the CCT) and Dr Oliver Cox, Heritage Engagement Fellow (University of Oxford) and will have the form of a structured discussion around three themes: histories, heritage science and business.

This is a targeted event for subject specialists and university staff, with attendance by invitation only.

We hope the format will facilitate knowledge exchange and the development of new collaborations going forward, as well as providing a set of clear approaches and considerations for the future. If you are interested in participating please contact TORCH Heritage Programme Support Officer, Katerina Vavaliou.
