Common Ground x Coney Taster Days
Over a week in May/June, Common Ground teamed up with artists Coney to deliver a series of creative heritage taster days with partner sites around East Anglia! These sessions gave young people access to heritage sites and a sample of our upcoming weeklong summer workshops with Coney.
Over one day, Coney introduced their playful approach to art making, as well as giving the young people the opportunity to explore the site and share what they found inspiring about it.
Through playing, re-designing and creating their own original creative games, the groups learnt about game mechanics and interactive art, expanding their creative thinking. After exploring and discovering more about the site, the young people designed, developed and delivered interactive experiences on site inspired by the location.
From saving cat spirits through an escape room at Peckover House to a completing a quest from an ancient king at Flag Fen, some amazingly creative experiences were made. We can’t wait to see what happens in a whole week this summer!
