A fascinating and exciting afternoon was enjoyed by the Y Heritage team and some of our young people. They were invited to watch the team at Leicester Print Workshop take delivery of a Colombian printing press which will be on exhibition until the 4th of May and the subject of a restoration project called “The New Custodian”. This project received £9000 of funding from the first round of pitches to our Y Heritage team and young people and was one of three successful bids.
Leicester Print Works are offering a meaningful placement to one of our young people as part of the project. Both parties will receive training and support during the process and both young people and heritage organisations will benefit from a young person’s perspective and the increased engagement of young people with the heritage sector. You can follow the project on Instagram @thenewcustodian. If you’re a heritage organisation and would like to know more about future rounds of funding, please email [email protected] or call 0116 204 6211.
