Event description

Description

The AHRC Heritage Priority Area and Rescue: The British Archaeological Trust are hosting the Conference ‘Engaging with Policy in the UK: Responding to Changes in Planning, Heritage and the Arts’ at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology, London on Saturday 27 October 2018 to address challenges and opportunities resulting from changes in policy which impact the culture, arts and heritage sectors, and will also address the role organisations and civil society can take to shape policy in Government.

There have been significant changes in the political landscape and increasing numbers of consultations/calls for evidence have emerged in the past few years, all of which are impacting the sectors that we work in. This Conference invites speakers from a range of organisations who have needed to respond to many of the changes brought forth, while also participating in government consultations by responding to proposals and calls for evidence.

The Conference will explore questions such as how we provide the relevant information/evidence or highlight key issues to help reshape policy as we withdraw from the EU, recognising areas of concern such immigration policies, whether the natural and historic environment is adequately protected in British Law, to how the arts, culture and heritage will or could be funded.

For more information, please visit the Heritage Research or Rescue website.
