Dover Arts Development worked with The Marlowe in Canterbury on Phase 1 of Return of the Unknown. The project explored World War One across five towns in Kent one of which was Dover: what we remember, how we remember and what is forgotten.

FRESHART brought together young people aged 16-25 in a 12 week programme of creative workshops leading to a public exhibition.

DAD worked with a network of schools, led by Astor College, on a STEAM initiative to help facilitate a strong link to develop between the arts and sciences at the participating schools through cross curricular and project based learning, underpinned by the concept of creativity across the curriculum.
