Heritage & Education

We work with heritage partners to enhance their engagement with children and young people.

Over 10 years we’ve worked closely with over 50 museums, heritage sites and galleries, often over many years. Our projects aim to make heritage accessible, relevant and meaningful for children and young people through creative engagement with literature and stories, heritage and histories.

We specialise in programming authors in stimulating contexts, making creative connections between books and the collections, exhibitions, buildings, sites, people and places. We also produce author-led participatory projects where children and young explore heritage and produce exciting outcomes for other young people to enjoy – often with a publishing element. And we enrich education practice in the heritage sector by working with authors to make resources to support site-based teaching and learning.

Organisations who have commissioned our work include Historic Royal Palaces, Nottingham Unesco City of Literature and Ironbridge Gorge Museums.
