“Durham Castle and Cathedral, Nine Years a World Heritage Coordinator”
Held on Saturday 2nd December 2023, 2pm, n Elvet Riverside, New Elvet, room 140
The talk was given by Jane Gibson, former Coordinator of Durham’s World Heritage Site.
After 9 years as Coordinator for Durham Castle and Cathedral World Heritage Site I have had the privilege of working with so many knowledgeable colleagues, many of whom have given their time and expertise freely, on a wide range of topics and in widely varying circumstances. Coming to the position with a background in the heritage sector, I found the environment of development and planning on and around the WHS particularly stimulating(!), but also enjoyed the more familiar ground of community engagement in ensuring our WHS remains at the heart of so many communities in and around Durham City and much further afield. In a brief 45 minutes, I look forward to sharing some of these experiences with you.
