Cultural Arts enables Your Helping Hands to move its work in directions other than heritage. While still allowing us to be focused on the community, it means that we can celebrate parts of the shared community culture that are distinct from this. For example Cultural Arts has focused on Wolverhampton’s Asian community’s cultural heritage aside from history, such as Holi and Diwali festivals.
However, Cultural Arts’ most crucial contribution to our network is its exploration of how new technologies can affect the heritage and culture which we are seeking to capture, safeguard, and raise awareness of. For example, it was through the research and initiative of Cultural Arts that we have decided upon future directions for Your Helping Hands, in terms of how we gather and manage heritage.
