Come and join Common Ground’s 2022 lead artists, Coney, for a fun and creative workshop at the National Trust’s Peckover House and Garden. Taking place on Wednesday 1 June between 10:30am and 4:30pm, you’ll be guided by Coney and their playful approach to art making over one day. They’ll introduce you to game mechanics and digital platforms to create new and exciting experiences around Peckover House. This is where you get to shape this year’s Common Ground.

This workshop will be followed by a one-week summer project led by Coney and you at Peckover House between the 25 and 29 July. During the week you’ll get to develop your creative ideas and skills and help shape the future of your local communities.
So if you’re aged 13 – 18 then we would love for you to join us on this journey.

No experience of making art, games or knowledge of the heritage site is needed – just be interested and open to having fun!

Coney create interactive theatre, games and adventures where people can choose to take a meaningful part.

Those taking part in the taster day should meet at Peckover House at 10:15am. Directions to the house can be found here.
Travel costs to/from Peckover House can be reimbursed.
Lunch, snacks and refreshments will be provided by Common Ground throughout the day.
