In the last couple of years the Argyll and Bute Museums and Heritage forum has reformed to represent all in Argyll and Bute who have an interest in Heritage, individuals, volunteers or professionals. Our membership includes people who enjoy local history as a hobby, those who work in Museums, who run businesses connected to our local history, who organise and attend walks, talks, activities and events, and those dedicated folk who care for sites and gather local history at local archives.
Our autumn 2018 AGM was attended by an enthusiastic group representing Heritage across the sector, and across the area.
It was very heartening to the committee members to receive such support and for our Heritage to be such a vibrant area.
A number of plans for the forum were discussed, the forums place alongside CHArts and other organisations, and we are looking forward to some interesting years ahead.
Autumn 2019 has been a busy time working towards a highly successful conference in Oban inviting people in from all across the sector, from tourism, and across the country. It was an amazing atmosphere, lots of networking, plenty to learn from each other and great inspiration for the future.
George MacKenzie launched the Ancestral tourism in Argyll initiative and the Forum will be working with him over the coming year to develop this concept which has such immense potential.
