Taking the significant Faro Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Council of Europe 2005) as it’s starting point, this book presents pragmatic views on the rise of the local and the everyday within cultural heritage discourse and it examines ways in which authorised or 'expert' views of heritage can be challenged. It concludes that local agenda and everyday places matter, and examines how a realignment of heritage practice to accommodate such things could usefully contribute to more inclusive and socially relevant cultural agenda.
