(Multi)Cultural Heritage is an AHRC-supported research project lead by Dr Susan Ashley, Department of Arts. The project seeks to understand engagements with heritage and identity by Black and minority ethnic organisations in the Northeast of England. Cultural heritage is understood here as traditions, characteristics and ways of thinking drawn from the past.

The aim of the project is to understand the motivations and activities of the organisations involved in this work; facilitate ideas and exchanges among practitioners, and contribute to social justice considerations by foregrounding multicultural voices and public activities in UK society.
