Heritage learning and participation activities

Selkirk CARS is promoting and developing a three year educational programme which runs from 2014 - 2017. Each year will have a theme:

  • Year 1 (2014/15) - Origins of Selkirk & the Royal Burgh
  • Year 2 (2015/16) - Literary & Creative Selkirk
  • Year 3 (2016/17) - Industrial Heritage of Selkirk

The programme is being developed in conjunction with:

  • schools
  • community organisations
  • interested individuals aimed at raising the awareness, understanding and enjoyment of Selkirk's rich heritage

What are the aims of the initiative?

The educational programme will adopt a 'living heritage' approach that aims to engage with all sections of the community. The programme aims to:

  • use physical and digital methods
  • seek opportunities to maximise national and international awareness of the town's history and heritage to both attract tourism and enhance visitor experience
