Title: Homegrown – a video game
Project: Connecting disadvantaged young people with the landscape through arts

The key messages for decision makers are here.

Materials and dimensions: digital device. Approximately 40cm x 30cm x 4cm

Inspiration: We created this video game during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Our hope had been to work with children to explore areas of Blackpool with them. But Covid-19 restrictions meant that we could not physically meet. The game allows questions to be added and can accommodate a collage of artworks of landscapes and natural areas in Blackpool. We had two aims. First to capture and represent the diversity of landscapes in this locality. Second to inspire children to physically go to new places and to share their views about them.
