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.

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.
