Creative Peninsula

Cre­ative Penin­su­la is an AHRC-fund­ed knowl­edge exchange project focus­ing on retelling sto­ries of place in the south west.

Creative Peninsula focuses on increasing access and exchange between urban and rural communities, celebrating the region’s distinctive landscape and Atlantic coastline, whilst exploring its complex histories, through socially engaged arts programming.

Creative Peninsula aims to establish a network of partners across Devon and Cornwall and to co-create a platform with local communities for re-telling the ‘stories of place’, working to overcome barriers to social inclusion, wellbeing and environmental sustainability. It builds upon the research project, Outside the Box, which asked how open-air performance might reconnect people with the environment following the peak of the Covid pandemic, whilst also expanding on the work of the Creative Arc knowledge sharing initiative developed by Exeter City Council, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the University of Exeter.
