In this seminar Dr Tracy Breathnach discusses the co-productive methodology she uses to engage young people and children with history and heritage. With a strong emphasis on co-production and authorship within her work, she uses a wide range of creative approaches to engage young people holistically.
The seminar will be structured around three case studies:
- Wartime Bridgend (2017-2019)
- Copperopolis (2018-2021)
- Pilgrims in the Valleys (2021)
