Our Places; Our Pasts; Our Perspectives

For several years, we have partnered with Corrymeela, Ulster University, Queen’s University, Belfast City Council and Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council to explore effective multi-disciplinary approaches to engaging with contested heritage.

The partnership is currently delivering Our Places; Our Pasts; Our Perspectives, enabling us to strengthen our methodology and establish a community of practice across the heritage and community development sectors. During the delivery phase of the project, quarto have acted as lead facilitator of an accredited leadership course bringing together professional and voluntary practitioners in heritage and community development from across NI. Together with participants we interrogate how contested heritage is manifested in place and explore ethically-informed participative approaches to engaging with local communities in telling more inclusive stories about our past.
