Heritage of Minority Faith Buildings In The 20th Century

CONFERENCE: 12 MARCH 2018 (MONDAY, 10.00 – 17.00)

Historic England has been working with partners over recent years to develop and deepen an understanding of the landscape of faith buildings in 20th century England, including the long-standing traditions of Christianity and Judaism. This particular event will instead focus on those faith groups which arrived in the UK in the late 19th and 20th century, and have since made a significant contribution to the heritage of a modern and multicultural historic environment.

For the first time, we and Historic England will bring together this new body of research on Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jain and Zoroastrian places of worship with heritage practitioners, researchers and theorists. The aim is to provide a platform for a discussion on issues of heritage practice and heritage discourse in the field of multiculturalism, multiple identities and the historic environment. This will provide an opportunity for a long overdue debate on the significance and character of buildings whose quality and importance have not been fully recognised in heritage debates.
