LATEST NEWS:

The Armed Forces Day National Event is coming to the Borough of Scarborough on the 25th June and here at Animated Objects we've been busy making preparations for the community outreach events we've had in planning since 2020. There's lots happening, including children's parades in three different towns; sculpture trails and digital soundscapes as well across the week leading up to the big day.

The community outreach programme was commissioned by Scarborough Borough Council. For more details on what will be happening with community events, please visit our Armed Forces Day page.

We've also been busy working on our latest large scale project- 'The Odyssey', working with the Yorkshire Coast BID to deliver participatory arts along 100 miles of coastline, reinventing an epic tale with the local communities at its heart. Over the past few months we've been engaging artists, musicians, storytellers and local volunteers to help us tell this incredible story.

We brought a large scale puppet; 'The Survivor' to the coast in late April as part of this epic tale. The response was overwhelming, and it was great to see thousands of people come along to see her and find out more about Aura's story and how she fit into the narrative of The Odyssey. For more details visit The Odyssey page, where you'll find images, and a short film featuring local residents telling the story of how the Trojan Wars began.


Look out for updates on our social media channels in the coming months, as we've got lots of exciting plans for the year ahead, including the construction of the mighty Trojan Horse - will it be the largest structure of its kind ever built? You'll have to judge that for yourselves - it will be at Bridlington Spa from the 7-9th October.

We also have a new geolocation version of the tale, where you can listen to the story of how the Trojan Wars began told by a host of storytellers and performers from the coast, and featuring the work of musicians from this region.



It’s going to be epic.

And you can be part of it.

Follow us to stay up to date with how to get involved in the coming months.

And we look forward to welcoming you on our adventures once again.
