Creative Peninsula focuses on increasing access and exchange between urban, rural and coastal communities, celebrating the region’s distinctive landscape and Atlantic coastline, whilst exploring its complex histories, through socially engaged arts programming and cultural enquiry.
Creative Peninsula aims to establish a network of partners across Devon and Cornwall and to co-create a platform with local communities for re-telling the ‘stories of place’, working to overcome barriers to social inclusion, wellbeing and environmental sustainability. It builds upon the research project, Outside the Box, which asked how open-air performance might reconnect people with the environment following the peak of the Covid pandemic, whilst also expanding on the work of the Creative Arc knowledge sharing initiative developed by Exeter City Council, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the University of Exeter.
Health & Wellbeing
Exploring how a renewed understanding of the region and our place in it help us to live better, healthier lives.
The climate crisis isn't going away: how can we act on a regional level and how can we build environmental sustainability into our cultural priorities?
How can we make and re-make the places we live? How can we regenerate areas of deprivation so as to put culture at the centre, and with a sensitivity to the diverse histories of these areas?
