Culture of the Countryside

Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have been working in partnership with schools and community organisations across Norfolk and Suffolk since 2008. We are thinking together about how we can interpret and present the contemporary heritage of the countryside of East Anglia and we aim to help people discover new perspectives on their own culture, and increase awareness of the importance of their local heritage and how it relates to a global context.

About the project

Culture of the Countryside is a Heritage Lottery funded three-year programme aiming to encourage a better understanding of the culture and heritage of the East Anglian countryside through direct engagement with the Sainsbury Centre collections of art from around the world.
