Our Current Programme

Being able to see inside a life amazed me and made me more curious.’,

Our programme for the academic year 2019/20 is currently in development. We are expanding our work through the academic year.

In addition we are beginning to explore the setting up of Extension Projects – a long-held ambition to extend the benefits of working with creative writing within the historical environment to young people who might not otherwise enjoy the possibility.

 Autumn Term 2019

November 6 and 13  and continuing throughout the year

Making Sense of Time – an Extension Project.

at Time and Tide Museum, The Tollhouse Gaol and Cromer Museum.

A six session project over the academic year, with students from Horatio House Independent school, Lowestoft

First two sessions of six incorporating field-visits to Museums in Norfolk followed by in-school writing sessions with 17 & 18 yr old students. Led by Elizabeth Ferretti

In collaboration with Kick The Dust, an HLF-funded project of the Norfolk Museums Service. The project has developed out of our on-going relationship with the Young Norfolk Arts Trust.
