HAVRC is the Heritage and Arts Visitor Research Collaborative, a part of the Futures Research Group at York St John University. HAVRC is designed to foster a critical academic approach to public engagement in heritage and the arts and to act as a vehicle for collaborative work with academics in other faculties and institutions as well as practitioners, operators and communities of interest outside the immediate academic sphere. HAVRC seeks, therefore, to advance scholarship in heritage as a social and cultural practice and to make an impact in the wider community by making and sharing knowledge that is of practical value.
