RSA Scotland Fellows' Media, Creative Industries, Culture & Heritage Network (MCICH) is hosting a joint event with (and at) the National Library of Scotland. Entry is via George IV Bridge.
Graham Bell, Director of the North of England Civic Trust, Council Member of Europa Nostra and RSA Fellow, will address issues around heritage as identity and "what makes you who you are". In so doing, he may also draw on his recent consultancy in Hungary.
Graham Bell, an RSA Fellow since 2001, trained as an architect under the formative influence and social ethos of Ralph Erskine and in 1995 became Director of North of England Civic Trust. He has transformed the Trust through its historic building projects and established it as a leading authority on conservation management. In 2015, the Trust was awarded an EU Prize for its Heritage Skills Initiative.
A graduate of Common Purpose, he has become an advocate of sustainability through cultural values. He was a board member of the £200m Grainger Town Partnership regeneration programme, which won international recognition for its inclusive management. He is a regular contributor on cultural heritage management in European exchange programmes and conferences. He has also been an architectural adviser to the National Trust for twelve years, is a member of the Council of Europa Nostra, and was a founding member of Future for Religious Heritage, a European charity that supports historic places of worship of all faiths.
Graham is a research fellow at a UNESCO Chair institute in Hungary, where he set up a foundation eight years ago, and he is currently involved in conservation projects in Slovenia and Serbia.
