heritage-logoThe Heritage Lottery fund have launched Kick the Dust, a £10million pilot programme aimed at encouraging the heritage and youth sectors to explore new ways of working with young people.

Supporting the Government’s Culture White Paper priority to involve young people more effectively in the UK’s culture, it will see youth and heritage organisations work together to make heritage relevant and inclusive for 11 to 25 year olds.

Consortia of three or more organisations, including heritage and youth organisations, can now apply for grants of £500,000 to £1m to deliver ambitious and sustainable projects focused on increasing the scale and quality of youth engagement with heritage.
