Historic Environment Scotland, Archaeology Scotland and the Scottish Council on Archives are delighted to announce the return of Scotland's Community Heritage Conference for its eighth year.

This conference offers an opportunity for community groups to gather, share experiences, celebrate their achievements, learn from each other and from the professional sector, discuss, debate and plan for the future.

The theme this year is Making Places, Connecting People. Your very involvement in local heritage plays a vital role in defining and celebrating your community, your place. Moreover, by involving your friends and neighbours, you are building and strengthening connections that bring benefits far beyond the aims of individual projects.

These are also priorities for government – to help communities discover, cherish and protect the richness that is our heritage, right across Scotland. So we invite you to join us to share your experiences, thoughts and plans in the annual celebration that is Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference!

Contributions are invited to this unique annual celebration of Community Heritage across Scotland, and we'd be delighted to hear from you if you wish to offer a talk or display.

Please use the submission proposal form via the link below if you would like to contribute, and please note that the closing date for this Call for Contributions is Sunday 18 August.

Tickets will be on sale from September and you can email if you wish to be added to the mailing list and kept up-to-date.

Submissions to present are now closed.
