About The Two Fifty

To mark 250 years of Norfolk & Norwich Festival, we are developing some very special multi-year projects focusing on working with Norfolk communities.

We are working with the acclaimed Lone Twin on developing one such project. Currently in a Research and Development phase, The Two Fifty is an is a unique, ambitious participatory art project to establish a county-wide Guild of 250 members who will undertake good deeds and cultural actions in and with their communities.

The Two Fifty will bring together 250 participants from across the county to become members a Guild dedicated to individually and collectively acting as a powerful catalyst for culture and good. As part of its activities, the Guild will celebrate and undertake acts of kindness, something more pertinent than ever in these current times.

The Two Fifty will galvanise and support Norfolk communities to identify and work towards the issues that matter to them and they will undertake public acts and interventions as a meeting place for art, ceremony and the pragmatic activity of volunteering. They will also come together in annual celebration at The Festival and will wear an exceptionally good-looking uniform!

The Guild will be 250 people ready and willing to help across the region; their activities forming part of the fabric of our cultural and community life.

We are beginning to establish the Guild with a group of founding members, so keep an eye on the website as more information is revealed!
