In partnership with the British Museum and the Institute of the Public Understanding of the Past (IPUP), DHG convened a cutting edge conference looking at diversity and equalities in the then new political, legal and economic landscape.
The Cultural Equalities Now conference programme looked at links between cultural heritage and agendas such as big society, volunteering, localism and social entrepreneurialism.
It also highlighted institutional duties under the Equalities Act 2010 and shared views on recent changes from across the cultural heritage sectors. Major funding bodies were invited to illustrate how they continue to contribute to improving equalities in the sector.
The conference resources also include the filmed interview with Baroness Estelle Morris part one and part two.
In addition to scheduled speakers, well known thinkers, practitioners and policy makers hosted delegates in conversation at ‘Talking Tables Programme’ to keep the buzz going over lunch.
