Dig: the value of archaeology for society and the economy | The Heritage Council Conference, Kilkenny & Dublin)

In what ways does archaeology impact positively on our society and economy? How can this be sustainably deepened? ‘Dig: the value of archaeology for society and the economy’ will be a five-day event where these questions are thoroughly addressed. The first four days (Nov 5-8) are based in Kilkenny. On the final day (Nov 9), activity shifts to Dublin.

The event is organised along the four overlapping themes of creativity, community and well-being, placemaking, and the economy.

The main spine of Dig will be a two-day conference in The Set Theatre, Kilkenny, where national and international speakers will talk about best practice projects they have led (November 6th & 7th). Nov 6th focuses on creativity and community/well-being. Nov 7th focuses on the economy and placemaking. Complementing the conference will be a series of workshops, tours and panel discussions held during the week which will deepen learnings.

The event will be of relevance to community leaders, museum professionals, local authority professionals, archaeologists, developers, architects, arts professionals, tourism professionals, heritage officers, planners, landscape architects, architectural conservation architects, and community professionals.
