Whilst our latest mobile platform explores the themes and spaces around us, through the medium of digital trails.
Our digital outreach workshops are designed to nurture skills transfer and social enterprise in former-industrial heartlands.

These activities are supported by our not-for-profit, community interest company – Mine2Minds Education.
