Following the outstanding success of last year’s inaugural Heritage Angel Awards, Ulster Architectural Heritage is delighted to advise that the 2018 Awards are now open for applications or nominations. This Newry-based workshop will explore how a person/group or project can gain recognition for their tremendous efforts in preserving, protecting and understanding our heritage.
The annual awards aim to celebrate unsung angels of local heritage. Heritage Angels could be, individuals and communities who have rescued an historic building or completed heritage projects, they could have worked as craftsmen or apprentices, or recorded and interpreted a historic place. The Awards are funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and Derry & Strabane District Council.
This event is part of a series of public workshops across Northern Ireland to help local people and groups discover all about the 2018 Heritage Angel Awards NI. These workshops will help to explain the award categories and give advice on how to nominate a person, group or heritage project in your area for an award. Last year we had an extremely high level and number of entries and we know that there are many projects which are deserving of an Award. If you applied last year you are welcome to apply or nominate again and we would encourage you to do so. This year an additional category has been added to recognise large-scale regeneration projects in excess of £2M and the timescale for completion of projects has been extended from 4 to 10 years.
Event has past.
