The consultancy will support sustainable ways of working, audience development and artist commissioning as part of ‘Trust New Art’, the Trust’s programme of contemporary arts inspired by place.

Throughout 2019 Rebecca Spooner, Creative Director for Peak is mentoring properties in the South Wales region. During the Spring Rebecca worked with artist Owen Griffiths to deliver workshops with National Trust staff from Dyffryn Gardens, Dinefwr, Colby Woodland Garden and Tredegar House.

The workshops explored the existing resources and contexts of the different properties, including their untold stories, and introduced wider examples of contemporary arts practice with heritage sites across the UK and internationally.

The workshops aimed to support the confidence and knowledge of staff to develop distinctive opportunities for artists and audiences and to consider why and how they want to work with artists.

The consultancy is delivered as part of a recent Memorandum of Understanding between the National Trust and Arts Council of Wales.
