Reverberate 2023 funded grassroots youth organisations to run small, locally-based projects that empowered young people to re-discover, re-imagine and re-create their heritage through creativity. This year, each project was inspired by English Heritage sites and stories, including those people commemorated by our blue plaques scheme.

Applications closed in April 2023 and we provided support to eight youth groups across the country with access to English Heritage sites and stories, as well as £2,000 each to complete their project. These groups explored the places, voices and activities that make their chosen heritage story unique and important to them.

Each project engaged critically and creatively with the past and demonstrated how these stories can interact with and impact the present in ways that are meaningful to young people today.
