Dig! Arts Access Project: Finding Inspiration in the Park

Melanie Giles, Karina Croucher

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Dig! Arts Access Project brought together excavation with artistic interpretations using collage, painting, drawing and poetry, to engage school learners in the legacy of the Whitworth Park Community Archaeology and History project. Through a series of workshops and site visits with local schools, participants expressed some of the ambiguities felt by urban children about parks. However, by the end of the sessions, they had increased their understanding of the history and heritage of their everyday places and were more confident about visiting parks.
