Projects

Our projects create new ways to explore our history and discover some of the most important heritage sites in England.

From Stonehenge in Wiltshire to Berwick Barracks in Northumberland, we are making art, developing new plays, films, soundscapes, and exhibitions all inspired by England’s rich heritage.

We are transforming how we tell England’s stories.

Across spring 2022, we supported My Life My Choice's Alice in Wonderland: The People's Version research project.

Alice in Wonderland: The People's Version involved looking at Lewis Carroll's depiction of disabled people and examining its effect on those with disabilities and mental health issues.

Heritage of Nature

For five weeks, from March to April 2022, we worked with the Royal Society for Blind Children on our Heritage of Nature project.

The project, inspired by Charles Darwin's home, Down House, explored Charles Darwin's history, his discoveries, and his lasting influence on how we view the natural world.

We looked at how our connection to nature through time has changed, and the project culminated in art work inspired by nature and Down House's gardens.

A year later, from November through to December 2021, we worked with Young Music Makers again, to further develop and explore the history and context of local blue plaques, and the theme of jazz and its connections to dance.

Sea Songs

Sea Songs was an outdoor art and nature project sponsored by Shout Out Loud. It is part of ‘Wild Eye’, a programme led by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Invisible Dust in Scarborough and Whitby.

In this project, students from Scarborough Sixth Form worked with leading sound artist, Rob Mackay.

Together, we explored how creativity and conversations can help people from the local area, as well as new visitors, to engage more with the natural environments surrounding these sites.
