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.

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

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
