Common Ground is about connecting young people with their local heritage through the arts.
What is heritage you ask? Well, there are two types of heritage: Cultural heritage like museums, and historic buildings; and Natural Heritage, like nature reserves, rivers and landscapes.
What’s great about Common Ground is that young people like you will have the opportunity to choose the creative projects we run, so that young people have the chance to take part in something they will really enjoy. So if you’re a young person aged 13 – 26 then we would love for you to join us on our journey. #makeheritageyoungagain
This is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival 250 project and is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. We are proud to be able to deliver this project in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, National Trust, Prince’s Trust, SHARE Museums East, Colchester & Ipswich Museums and Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
Common Ground Leaders
Common Ground Leaders is a community of 18 – 25 year olds who are interested in learning more about the arts, heritage, creating, producing, and changing the world around them. If you’re based in East Anglia, want to join a community of like-minded individuals where you can develop your skills & personal practice whilst having a say in the work we do and accessing unique opportunities then this is (probably) a good fit for you.
You might be an artist, a historian, a filmmaker, a producer, a creative genius, or someone who’s not creative at all but wants to try something new. You might be a natural leader or someone just beginning to develop your own voice. You might just be here for the masterclasses or you might want to be involved in every opportunity we offer (which includes paid jobs!). Whoever you are, you are more than welcome in this community and we really look forward to meeting you.
What are the requirements?
- You need to to be based in Norfolk, Suffolk or Peterborough
- Be 18-25
- There is no 3. That’s it!
