The 1,2 History Crew
Shortlisted Category C: Best Contribution to a Heritage Project by Young People
The ‘1,2 History Crew’ co-designed a trail for other young people to learn about Arbroath’s heritage, creating bookmarks and working with a local artist to design ‘seals’ linked to their sites which were turned into stamps. Stamps and bookmarks were all placed in special boxes designed to look like red sandstone which were hidden in different locations round Arbroath Abbey to create the Arbroath Abbey Trail. The project enabled the group to explore what their local heritage meant to them, take pride in it and to share it with others, while taking leadership roles for the first time.
