Whether this is to you, your stakeholders, your wider company, the local authority or to members of the public, we provide appropriate positive dissemination of results in a timely, concise and informed manner.
Through detailed technical reports, academic or popular publications we possess a track record of delivery. We provide our clients with the outputs that achieve their statutory aims and planning requirements in the most appropriate means of dissemination. In addition to traditional text-based approaches we also cater for digital dissemination in a variety of different media and formats in order to have the maximum impact for your target audience.
Heritage is all around us and can be a passionate and emotive subject appealing to a diverse audience. We work with our clients to help promote a project’s heritage engagement and access potential within the local community by creating relevant opportunities for involvement.
Engagement activities often vary due to scale and appropriateness. Salford Archaeology can design a programme of activities that creates the maximum meaningful impact for our clients. Some of the most successful engagement activities on past projects have included open days, online or in person lectures, guided talks, education visits and community-led excavations. Activities can include on site or external settings and are tailored to each group’s needs and the stakeholders’ opportunities and requirements.
We are always keen to utilise the appeal of archaeology and heritage engagement to promote positive stakeholder activities and messages.
