The inspiration for Really Lovely Projects and The Little Book of Cornwall, came from Emma Mansfield's time at the Eden Project.
Between 2002 and 2006 and under the artistic direction of Sue Hill (associate director of Wildworks and former Kneehigh performer) Emma Mansfield developed and managed the arts and creative department. A fantastically creative and committed team that produced some of Eden's finest moments during that time.
As Eden's first Creative Producer, Emma Mansfield and the Eden Live Team devised and delivered Eden's Time of Gifts Season, The Opening of the Core, Colour Explosion, The Eden Sessions, Africa Calling. We also created and delivered the on-going site wide visitor engagement programme, which included Bulb Mania and Adventures in Chocolate.
The creative team at Eden worked with artists, designer-makers, performers, singers, choirs and concert bands from all over Cornwall and cued over 163 lantern processions and firework finales!
