Exploring, Discovering, Learning

I want to make the Past, both History and Prehistory, more exciting, relevant and 'hands-on'. It's a fun place with some great stories, I want to share these with everyone.
I work with schools, museums, community groups, either at their place or outdoors in the Landscape.
I develop and deliver projects. I create resources. Exploring the Past and our shared heritage, bridging the divide and Discovering the links between these artefacts, sites or museum and Us. I try to put objects back in context, helping people Learn about the past. I use objects, both orginal and replica, costume, crafts and role play, in other words - Living History.

I'm a member of a small group of like-minded people - The Deja Crew

Connecting Light

This weekend I'll be involved in something very different -

Connecting Light - London 2012 Festival

Connecting Light is a major new digital art installation along the line of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site, one of the most significant structures of the Roman Empire.
The Connecting Light installation will be live between 8pm and 11pm on Friday 31 August and Saturday 1 September. 
Connecting Light is an opportunity to re-imagine Hadrian’s Wall as a metaphor for borders and boundaries, and as a structure that inspires communication rather than division and confrontation, stimulating creative conversations.
You are able to influence the outcomes of Connecting Light through direct engagement with the installation
Messages sent across the Wall will be made visible online and through handheld mobile devices during the day and throughout the installation ‘performances’, and at a number of visitor sites across the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.
The installation will be visible in the evening between dusk until 11pm.
Influence the artwork by sending a message, or to discover more visit www.connectinglight.info
