There are a number of goals which the Heritage Council asks you to consider when promoting and planning your National Heritage Week event.

Your event should where possible:

  • Encourage active participation and ‘doing’. This means provide opportunities to the public for real engagement in heritage education and conservation.
  • Reach out to new audiences and make heritage accessible to all i.e. people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, young people
  • Encourage volunteering and year-round engagement with Ireland’s heritage
