Common Ground

Home » Artists » Common Ground

Common Ground is a small, grassroots organisation that collaborates widely across the arts to engage people with their local environment and celebrate the intimate connections communities have with places.

The idea of ‘local distinctiveness’ is at the heart of everything they do, and for the last 35 years they have inspired people all over the country through Projects like Apple Day, New Milestones, Parish Maps, Tree Dressing and Community Woodlands.

Through music, film, festivals, photography, publishing, building, sculpture and poetry,  Common Ground enables people to unearth and express strong feelings of attachment to places, and discover that enjoying the particularity of these places, celebrating the ordinary lives and everyday wildlife, can also be a source of community cohesion and meaningful conservation.
