Central Programme Teams

Over the last 6 months we’ve been searching out and reading exciting applications from people wanting to run the central theme tents at Common Ground. We’ve encouraged international applications and everyone has explained how they’ll include under tens. They all have particular skills and experiences that make them great choices for their centres and we will be announcing more information about each of them over the next year! Exciting!

You don’t need to be one of these people to contribute to the programme though. If you have suggestions or want to contact any of these teams, then email and we can put you in touch.
Over the next year there will be many other ways to get involved and have your say so keep your eye out.
