About the People of Place
The People of Place is a new marketing and archive service being developed by the research and design agency TACIT-TACIT.
The initiative aims to support community heritage organisations and area based regeneration initiatives to engage wider audiences with local heritage.
"By focusing on the heritage of place through people, the service supports communities to highlight hidden local heroines and heroes, in all their diversity"
How it works
People make culture and history happen, but not everyone's contribution is remembered and celebrated in the same way.
By reviewing local archives with members of your community and facilitating discussions around inclusion within heritage narratives, we aim to raise the profile of local heroines and heros who have been overlooked.
We want heritage to mobilise community empowerment and learning.
By co-creating an online archive with communities, we aim to help make heritage accessible on the People of Place platform.

This service is in the early stages of development. We are looking for partners to help develop and test the concept. If your community group or organisation like the idea then either call or email and we can provide you with further information about how to work with the People of Place.
