A shared, collaborative and creative journey; an opportunity to explore new ideas, develop new relationships, play and experiment; a cross-pollination of skills and ideas between artists from different backgrounds and mediums, all focusing on creating work outdoors.
Three strands of exploration: Devising and writing story and character: Spoken Word – the study of the power of words through performance poetry ,writing, BSL signing, gesture and the voice: Word Technology - exploring interactive technology that can enhance the audience experience

Facilitating the journey will be performers and directors: John Nicolson (Peepolykus), Emma Williams, Richard Headon (Desperate Men) and Paschale Straiton (Red Herring/Improbable Theatre)
Writing, Spoken Word and BSL (Visual Vernacular) experts: Inua Ellams, Edson Burton, Lucy Catherine, Mike Akers, Kyra Pollitt and David Ellington
