Finding my place at Tyntesfield: an exploration of plurality

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

The 'Finding My place' event offers a series of writing workshops for marginalised young people, culminating in the creation of a zine that will be made available to future Tyntesfield visitors. The workshops will think about what voices and stories are not currently visible during a visit to Tyntesfield – for example, the perspectives of women, queer people, slaves and servants, and even animals. Of particular interest is the colonial history of Tyntesfield, which has recently been explored by Drs Kight and  Garrett through the GW4-funded ‘Colonial Connections’ project. Participants will use creative means to reflect on and bring these stories to life.
