This new award promotes Community Engagement with Industrial Archaeology projects
The award is given to projects anywhere in the world and nominations can be made by anyone, including those who have been involved in the project.
In judging nominations and identifying the winning application, the adjudicators will consider:
- The degree to which the organisation/project has successfully identified and targeted communities that might be interested in the project
- The size and diversity of the community which has engaged with the project
- The impact of the project on community members, including their knowledge and wellbeing
- The impact of community involvement on the industrial heritage project or asset/s
The Award is £500. The winners will be given the opportunity to apply for a further £500 in funding to carry out follow-up community engagement relating to the same project.
One person nominated by the winners will also receive one years’ free membership of the Association for Industrial Archaeology.
