Building Capacity : Developing Skills

Building Capacity : Developing Skills

Arts and Business Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of a new programme funded by Historic Environment Scotland (HES). The project Building Capacity : Developing Skills will support sector development for organisations who (directly or indirectly) celebrate, protect and care for heritage in Scotland. The fund will allow for the newly appointed Partnerships and Development Manager to curate a programme aimed at increasing skills, building capacity, networking and peer learning on both a national and local scale. The programme has been devised to encourage collaborative and partnership engagement between heritage, arts and business sectors, in order to encourage new activity, economic prosperity and bring health and well-being to people in communities across Scotland.

Elisa de Waal has been appointed to deliver the programme, which will create new engagement and sharing opportunities. Elisa’s background is in culture, events and community engagement. Over the duration of the project, Elisa will be looking to deliver a number of events (Digital, and in time, physical) which will empower people working with heritage to build capacity, strengthen confidence, support sustainability and so create a stronger sector. This will be a Scotland wide programme with bespoke solutions presented to different regions.

More information on this programme will be detailed here as it develops in response to ongoing engagement with the heritage sector and the arts/heritage combined sector.
