What we are today stems from our beliefs and values passed down from ancestry and the people who journeyed through life before we did.” – Est. 1930 Team
Join us to explore heritage and culture as we take an exciting journey through the eyes of a jewellery designer and then land in a cafe with a community activator who pushed the boundaries of innovation with satay.
What is the role of heritage and culture in our lives? Where has it brought us, and where is it taking us?
We are looking for participants interested in envisioning a Somerset Belt that harnesses the power of heritage and culture. Register and take part to win prizes in our quiz segment.
