Deveron Projects has a long track record in arts & community development through its town is the venue methodology, which engages with collaborative and other socially involving practices.
The Walking Institute builds on this experience through a programme that encompasses the diversity and ecology of place, its inhabitants and cultural heritage. This is done by responding to both community (people, histories, food, language, storytelling, ethnic diversity, politics) and physical context (place and landscapes, architecture, geographical and topographical features). Projects work with the existing strengths within the localities, whilst exploring themes that address directly the needs and interests of the communities and their places–a model that can fit any community.
Naturally, we continue to concentrate in exploring our own surrounding. At the same time we are developing more and more satellite projects further afield.
