Harlesden Heritage Action Zone (HHAZ)


Heritage Action Zones are a nationwide plan to support the heritage and vitality of High Streets across the country. Significant funding has been successfully secured from Historic England and London Borough of Brent to action a project that will celebrate the communities and young people of Harlesden, helping the area to revitalise in response to Covid-19 as well as to construct a legacy for its heritage and art.

With assistance from a cultural consortium consisting of local stakeholders, YBF will be the lead for the project, creating and delivering the content that will be the foundation of the Harlesden Heritage Action Zone (HHAZ). By centring this project around the communities and young people of one of London's most diverse and vibrant boroughs, HHAZ will provide lasting impact even once the project is completed in 2022.

Help us shape the project and celebrate your Harlesden! Join the conversation and have your say!

We are inviting people who live, work and visit Harlesden. Advocates, visionaries, change makers, and leaders of all cultures and abilities. Young people, residents, faith groups, community groups, local businesses and visitors are all welcome.

We will be meeting with the wider community and creating a youth cohort who will help co-design the project and will have opportunities to upskill.
