TRANSITion: From fields to Ford and beyond

We have just completed a 15-month community history project involving talented volunteers, from researchers to artists, in creating a pop-up museum exploring the industrial transformations of the former Ford site in Swaythling, Southampton.

 Stories of people who worked at the factories which occupied the site between 1939 and 2013 - Cunliffe-Owen, Briggs and the Southampton Ford Assembly plant - and those who are involved in its transformation to a high-tech logistics park are preserved on a legacy website.

Explore the Ford Transition website.

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.
