STICK thinktank 2012

The 5th Annual STICK conference took the form of a discussion thinktank and was held on Saturday 20th October at Riverside Museum, Glasgow.

The theme was Cultural Heritage Policy and its impact on industrial and transport heritage. The discussion covered heritage policy and its impact on the industrial and transport historic environment, museums, archives and survey with special reference to Scotland.

STICK was fortunate to receive sponsorship from Historic Scotland which provided lunch for attendees and has also gone towards the design and creation of a review and an online resource which will capture some of the talks and discussions from the day.

The event was chaired by Professor John Hume OBE and the speakers were:

Sir Neil Cossons (leading authority on the industrial heritage and currently Pro-Provost and Chairman of the Council of the Royal College of Art)

Dr Robin Chesters (Director, Almond Valley Heritage/Industrial Museums Scotland)

Kiara King (Implementation Group, National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland)

Andrew Fleming (Director of Policy and Legislation, Historic Scotland)
In the afternoon there was a workshop and group discussion.


Resources from the day, including transcripts, slides and an online review are now available:
