About The Project

Common Ground is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival 250 Project that connects young people with their local heritage through the arts. Over the next three years the project will engage creatively and digitally with young people across East Anglia, providing opportunities for 13-25 year olds to take part in events, projects, skills development, leadership training and paid traineeships.

This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, National Trust, Prince’s Trust, SHARE Museums East, and Suffolk Wildlife Trust.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
