INTO Online 2021
Wednesday 21 April 2021
Programme Day 2
10:00 – 11:00 Fundraising masterclass
Maximising your chance of success in applications
INTO members demonstrate ingenuity in their varied approaches to fundraising, from membership programmes to legacies and wills. In this session, we explore project funding in the international heritage space, with a presentation from the ALIPH Foundation, a $100 million Swiss fund targeting post-conflict heritage.
Discussions will centre on how INTO members can make the most of open calls for funding. Using the example of INTO’s ALIPH-funded project in Georgia, we’ll look at tips and tricks for submitting bids and the role that INTO can play in supporting applications.
12:00 – 13:00 People and Nature
Growing people’s relationship to green space
The pandemic has shown us how important access to nature is for people, with the National Trusts of the world providing important space for both wellbeing and fitness. As we move forward, many INTO members are now thinking about how we continue to talk to people about nature, how we build emotional connections but also how we use local nature to talk to people about global climate change.
This live workshop brings together three titans of the INTO family – The Trustees of Reservations, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland – to share their insights, experiences and innovative ideas for engaging people with the outdoors.
- Katherine Malone-France, INTO Trustee and Chief Preservation Officer at the National Trust for Historic Preservation
- Jen Klein, Director of Outdoor Experience, The Trustees of Reservations
- Celia Richardson, Director of Communication & Audience Insight, National Trust England, Wales and Northern Ireland
14:00 – 15:00 Travelling to Tomorrow
Heritage tourism in practice and a preview of INTO Antwerp 2022
In an inspiring interactive session, our Flemish colleagues will present their new approach to heritage tourism. Travel to Tomorrow brings to life the aspiration that “the tourism of tomorrow will be rooted in local communities … A flourishing community is very much connected to its specific place; where people work together, where visitors can feel at home and residents can nurture and share their love for the place.”
And as we wait for travel restrictions to lift, this session will also paint a vivid picture of the wonderful heritage of Flanders, that we will all soon be able to visit again (perhaps even as part of INTO Places?), and that will next year act as the cornerstone of our INTO Antwerp 2022 conference.
Join Justin Albert, INTO Trustee and National Trust Director for Wales, as he introduces the discussion with our guests about rethinking tourism and finding new models that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
For me, the greatest impact was in the broad range of people that I was able to meet, who are working within the same field—it not only put my own work into a global perspective but also gave our organisation inspiration and ideas for new projects and collaborations in the coming months and years.
16:00 – 17:00 Sites of Memory
Telling the story of slavery and freedom at our places
Our international National Trust family includes sites connected to the history of slavery and colonialism. How we tell these histories, sometimes hidden or forgotten, can help spark a dialogue that will lead to understanding and reconciliation today.
Join Elon Cook Lee, Director of Interpretation and Education at the US National Trust for Historic Preservation, and speakers from across the Atlantic to explore how heritage sites and organisations are finding new ways of telling a whole and accurate story. By listening to INTO members who share so much history, we can bring diverse voices into the conversation to enrich and amplify this narrative.
- Chair: Elon Cook Lee, Director of Interpretation and Education, National Trust for Historic Preservation
- Ryllis Percival-Godeth, Executive Director, St Christopher National Trust
- Francis Musa Momoh, Research and Development Officer, Sierra Leone Monuments and Relics Commission
- Sarah Stroud Clarke, Director of Museum Affairs at Drayton Hall, South Carolina
- Dr Rupert Goulding, Senior National Curator, National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland

Re-engage, rethink and explore our theme of building resilience alongside the best in global heritage, with three days of international learning and exchange.
Now more than ever we need to come together as a global family. To share ideas and approaches, concerns and challenges. And to stand in solidarity with other members of the movement.
INTO Online will take place over three days: 20 – 22 April 2021. All times are GMT+1.
Virtual means accessible, and we want to see more representatives of INTO members than ever before. When booking their place, INTO members will receive additional places for colleagues.Book now
