‘Around Here & Out There’ will focus on the exploration of Langport by taking a coach journey out of the town to another town in Somerset: Weston Super Mare. We have chosen Weston for a number of reasons:
- a traditional ‘outing’ or day trip destination
- the sea, the pier, the flood defence
- the public art installations ‘Wonders of Weston’ and accompanying guide provides a stimulating resource for our trip.
- accessible and practical within a day
We’ll be exploring sights and sounds on our day out, that will inspire participants to think about the place they live in, their friends and neighbours, their history and future.
We consider the journey to be as important as the destination and will develop a series of creative activities and games that will act as a catalyst for conversation, and laughs, between the participants. There’s nothing like the idea of a coach trip out to inspire memories of egg sandwiches and no leg room - but don’t worry! - this one is a coach trip with a difference - entertaining and interesting people, sights and sounds to behold, ice cream to be had!
Following the trip to Western-Super-Mare we will run two further ‘workshop’ sessions in Langport, inspired by Wonders of Western.
