I’m in Crete for this year’s Heritage Jam, which is a shame, because I had such fun in 2015. I thoroughly recommend participating:
The Heritage Jam (http://www.heritagejam.org/) is back for another year of creative and innovative heritage work, and we would love everyone – from anywhere in the world – to get involved!
The Jam is a free creative event centred around making new and different interpretations of the past for audiences of your choice on a specific theme. You can create these interpretations individually or in teams – in person or remotely.
The Jam will be hosted by Leeds Museums and Galleries at Leeds City Museum, on the 27th and 28th of October 2017. There is also an online Jam for those unable to travel, which runs from the 18th of September to the 26th of October.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN – read more: http://www.heritagejam.org/home2
This year’s theme is ‘The Bones of our Past’, inspired by the ‘Skeletons: Our Buried Bones’ an exhibition currently hosted by Leeds Museums and Galleries at Leeds City Museum in partnership with the Wellcome Collection and the Museum of London (http://www.heritagejam.org/blog/2017/9/18/and-the-theme-is).
Do you need to be an archaeologist or heritage professional to participate? NO! The Jam is open to all, including anyone with a passion for history!
Is there a fee? NO! The Jam has no participation charge, so there’s no reason not to join!
To sign up all you have to do is follow the link on our website – http://www.heritagejam.org/signup – and fill in a registration sheet.
All of our policies, including codes of conduct for the Jam, can also be found on our website: http://www.heritagejam.org/policies/.
We hope you can join us for this one of a kind event in October!
