Luz Frias Hernandez

Luz Frias Hernandez had an exciting placement at Historic England as part of the Listing Team.  She undertook the project ‘Understanding our national heritage through the local lens: Enriching the List with oral history’. She visited three Heritage Action Zones in London in order to capture community memories in form of interviews with the aim of appreciating why people value the built heritage and add these unrecorded stories to the National Heritage List of England. This was a fantastic opportunity to develop new skills, promoting local heritage while interacting with various stakeholders
