We collaborate with other writers, artists and organisations to deliver our work.

Here’s a brief introduction to some of the artists and organisations we have worked with…

Jo Dacombe, Artist

We have been collaborating with Jo for many years. Projects that we have worked with Jo on, include Re-discovering Leicestershire’s Victorian Lunatic Asylums and Exploring Maplewell Hall’s Heritage.

Last year we delivered the Cave Voice poetry workshop with Jo, and we are currently working with her to develop a new major project called Cave Voyages.

NT logo Calke Abbey is a unique National Trust “un-stately” home and country park that we have worked with since 2013. We focused on exploring the main house as part of the Locks, Bells & Peeling Wallpaper, and the Three Houses Dreamed poetry workshop series. We have explored the Tramway and Limeyards in a poetry workshop and poetry walk, and we have facilitated poetry discovery days for a local school, and family groups in the country park.
