History in the Making | Get up to £15k in Grants

Historic England is working with young people (aged 13-25) to create a new programme that will create place markers across the North of England. They will mark and celebrate important local histories that have been overlooked and bring them to a broader audience.

Place markers could be:

  • painted murals
  • immersive digital walking trails
  • community-designed gardens
  • or something entirely new.

Beyond plaques and information boards, they hope these projects will provide creative new ways for communities to recognise important aspects of their heritage in inspiring and lasting ways.

They are looking to provide grants of up to £15,000 each to a number of organisations or community groups. These organisations will be working directly with young people out-of-school hours, across the North of England in Levelling Up category 1 places.

Projects must be co-created, with young people’s voices at the heart of decision-making.

Deadline: Midnight on Friday 14 July 2023.
