Podcast: How heritage can give communities a new voice
Dr Dominique Bouchard, Head of Learning and Interpretation at English Heritage shares insights from her fifteen years of experience leading public programming and exhibitions, and explores ideas of how museums and heritage can help communities tell their own stories.
The podcast For Arts' Sake discovers what museums are really for and what people who work there really do. Above all, the podcasts find out what impact museums have on people's life. These stories are about the ground-breaking work that these people do - for arts’ sake and for your sake.
In this episode For Arts' Sake talks to Dr Dominique Bouchard about how museums can make real contributions to communities and wider society.
