Commissioning Creatives to Bring the Past to Life
The heritage sector is full of amazing stories, but sometimes we need a bit of help telling them. Since 2019, the Dig It! project has commissioned designers, illustrators, a tattoo artist, a storyteller, a spoken word artist and photographers to ignite the public’s imagination and foster enthusiasm for archaeology. Find out how this approach can help you reach new audiences through festivals, campaigns and celebrations, allow you to connect with creatives from underrepresented communities who can bring fresh approaches to how the past is depicted, enable you to develop and deepen relationships within and outside of the sector, and more.
