Golden Tree Productions is a Cornish-led community interest company developing and delivering constructive cultural projects that uncover and celebrate Cornwall’s distinctiveness and diversity. We work in collaboration with audiences that are currently under-engaged in culture and heritage, particularly those that are disadvantaged. We design cultural and educational solutions, intended to make a meaningful and lasting difference to these communities.
Golden Tree has earned a reputation for high quality work having;
1. authentic Cornish provenance
2. genuine contemporary relevance
3. highest artistic quality
Drawing on a wide pool of artistic skills and talent, we have delivered a range of genuinely ambitious projects to great acclaim. Commissioned by the CMWHS in 2016, the Man Engine, the largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain, has been described as “probably the largest and most impactful cultural event that Cornwall has seen in living memory” and was awarded “Best Arts Project” National Lottery Awards 2017. Through our ‘Tick Box Bus’ and our innovative, artistic approach to Cornish Language work (www.gocornish.org) we are tackling head-on the implications of the inclusion of the Cornish under the FCPNM.
Our latest project 'Kerdroya', the Cornish Landscape Labyrinth celebrates the humble Cornish hedge and was the successful bid for the Cornwall AONB's ‘Diamond Landscapes’ commission. The project consists of community engagement and hedge resoration acrosss the 12 AONB areas and will culminate in the building of a 50m diameter classical labyrinth built from 777m of artisan Cornish stone hedging on Bodmin Moor.
