Bedford Place Map Project

The project culminated in the production of a hand-drawn map of Bedford Place and the people on it. The venture is ongoing, and the map will take an animated form in the future, interweaving the stories and reminiscences of traders and residents from this unique quarter of the city.

Our projects past and present
March 2017 - June 2018
Planes, helicopters and the iconic Transit van – one small site in Southampton has produced them all. In 2013, the factory closed its doors and a high-tech logistics park has risen in its place bringing different kinds of jobs for a different kind of future.

October 2016
It’s not every day you get asked to make a ‘flash mob’ exploring the culture of philanthropy. We had great fun working with students from Solent University and Totton College creating a lively 8 minute piece exploring the stories of some of Britain’s greatest givers.

January - June 2016
Creating an exhibition to accompany an innovative touring show telling the incredible story of 'Sapper Dorothy Lawrence' - the first and only female soldier in WWI.

April - October 2015
A touring play exploring the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 through the stories of three ordinary folk caught up in the action. This play toured schools and historical venues, culminating in a centenary performance at The Great Hall , Winchester on 25th October 2015.
