Heritage Show + Tell is a chance for people passionate about heritage in Yorkshire to come together and share their work, get feedback on ideas and meet new collaborators. Everyone welcome; community heritage groups, freelancers, museum professionals, students and academics.

The idea for Heritage Show + Tell comes from other initiatives such as Science Showoff and Museums Showoff in London. We want to create a playful space for discussion and sharing (no long papers or nerve wracking presentations) and to find a format which works for people from different backgrounds and different sectors.

What does all this involve exactly?


Your project.

Three questions.

Three powerpoint slides.

Three minutes.

No pressure – just get up on your soapbox!

Have you got a project you want to shout about?

You might be working on a new learning programme or module and want to test out ideas.

Or you might be developing a new exhibition and are looking for people to develop event ideas.

Or you might be working on a research project and want to see if there is a ‘heritage’ angle.

Or you might have just finished a mind blowing outreach project and want to reflect on the process.

Or you might just have the seed of a research or exhibition idea and are looking for collaborators.


How it works?

1. Use three powerpoint slides to answer these three questions:

What are you working on?

Why is it exciting? / What are you stuck on?

What are you looking for?

2. Use this form to sign up to show and tell at Heritage Show + Tell

3. Come along on the day and share!

4. Then we mingle (and drink) and meet new people and collaborators.


By show we mean use the slides to visually answer the three questions above.

By tell we mean – tell a story, craft a narrative, get people excited, move them.
