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.

Speak Out

Between May and July 2021, we worked once again with Nugent, a charity that cares for, educates, and protects vulnerable children, young people and young adults. Our focus this time was 'Speak Out.' In this project, we focused on historic peace and protest movements. Using these as inspiration, we explored how to use art and creativity to communicate what was really important to us.
