People’s Heritage Co-operative


The People’s Heritage Co-operative is a group of historians, archivists and creative practitioners committed to developing educational and inspiring community heritage projects about the lives of Birmingham’s people.

In December 2018 we were awarded £36,100 by the Heritage Lottery Fund for ‘Represent’.

People’s Heritage Co-operative aims:

  • To promote and raise awareness of people’s heritage
  • To contribute to community cohesion and increase understanding of our diverse heritage
  • To support our members to more effectively work with people to share our culture and heritage
  • To develop a network of supportive members, developing their practice by promoting collaborative work, increasing participation in exploring and interpreting Birmingham’s heritage through an open membership policy
