Ice Age to Digital Age

We are pleased to be working with some passionate and creative organisations who can help share the incredible stories of the Nene with local communities and visitors through creative and exciting interpretation. Introducing Screen NorthantsHorizon Digital Economy Research Institute at the University of Nottingham and Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust.

Screen Northants will be working with us to deliver Nenescape on Film - an exciting project which will document the development and delivery of our partners' projects, as well as producing material to help promote our work. We'll be working with volunteers to get stuck in with helping to choose filming locations, writing interview questions and even getting in front of the camera! 

We also believe that new technologies have a large role to play in engaging new audiences with heritage and the environment, so will be introducing some through Artcodes Along the Nene. Our creative digital engagement experts at the Mixed Reality Lab (University of Nottingham) will be working with us, local history experts and our partner organisations to bring hidden heritage to life through a free artcodes app which allows images to be scanned with a smartphone or tablet and linked to online content. It works in a similar way to a QR code, but anyone can draw the scannable image.

Within the Ice Age to Digital Age project, there will also be exciting trails, events and much more to see and do. We're also looking to run creative workshops using John Clare as inspiration through Extracts of a Changing Landscape and launch Nenescape with a mass orchestral and choir performance of a specially-written musical composition called Nene in the Royal Albert Hall, led by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust and forming part of the Music for Youth proms.
