The Event

As part of the Design outreach: Utilizing graphic heritage project, Bradford UNESCO City of Film hosted an inaugural scoping study workshop to explore the relevance and importance of urban graphic heritage for local-residents, heritage practitioners, policy makers, public administrators, not-for-profit organisations, government agencies, creative designers and academic researchers.

The workshop encouraged participants to look at the fabric of the city through as urban-graphic-heritage, to reveal associated meanings through personal and collective narratives about places in the City Centre and Little Germany, two of the city’s six conservation areas.
