and so it begins....!

Digging into the heritage sandbox.

Wow, looking round the table at the sandbox yesterday, I was struck by the range of experience and creative ideas whirring in people's heads.

Perhaps the retro sweets helped, but there was a distinct buzz of excitement about the process ahead, and the opportunity to develop what REACT Director John Dovey described as a "platform for 21st Century Hauntings" or, what its more conventionally termed in the Heritage world, "bringing stories to life".

Couldn't be more apt for the Future Cemetery Project at Arnos Vale Cemetery. We've already been bouncing ideas around for the narrative 'hook' of our project, but we'll reveal these all in good time...

In the meantime, its a case of booking dates in the diary for future sandboxes, specialist workshops, testing events and field trips.

Also exciting is nabbing a prime-time slot at 8am on BBC Radio Bristol on Tuesday 10th April to talk about the project.

Bristol is already watching us!
