I have been MIA recently from this blog. That is because I have been video recording conferences over the last few weeks and the editing the videos takes up a lot of time. First up is Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference, held in Crief two weeks ago. It was a pretty amazing conference. With talks focusing on community heritage projects and workshops delivering excellent training. Alex made a mural of the talks:
Here were the talks:
