journal contributionposted on 2016-01-01, 00:00 authored by Jonathan Sweet
Over a number of years the author has been involved in community-based capacity building projects in which various forms of participatory learning have been applied. This paper argues for the potential of these types of experiences to enhance the learning of project participants, particularly in non-traditional heritage and museological circumstances. The examples are indicative of the region's cultural diversity and the heritage values that underpin each, are quite distinct. The projects are contextualised within a broader heritage discourse and their value as sites of applied research is also considered.
