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.

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.

We found ourselves asking… Why are humans drawn to collecting ‘trinkets’? And is a Russian rat’s tail from 1854 relevant today?
