and Dartmoor Resource

alt           alt


Dartmoor Resource has been put together by volunteers working alongside a professional team, under the umbrella of MED Theatre. The project involved five courses -  in website skills, research methods, animation, publishing and photography, and marketing. These were held in various locations around Dartmoor over a period of six months between October 2008 and April 2009, and gave the participants the necessary skills to work on researching, creating and publicising the website and its accompanying booklet. At the same time an education outreach programme delivered community myth-making workshops in Belstone and Moretonhampstead, and courses of six myth-making sessions in Chagford and Okehampton Primary Schools, including written, shadow-puppet and animation work. 

The website is designed to be an interactive forum. Research for it and creative response to the research is intended to be ongoing. Anyone who feels they can add something on an appropriate topic can submit an article. Schools that MED Theatre works with will have the opportunity to display their Dartmoor-inspired work.

Dartmoor Resource has been funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Dartmoor National Park.
