Jurassica was an audacious project that aimed to bring to life the lost world of the Jurassic Coast in a disused quarry on Portland, Dorset. It's aim was to be a world class attraction that celebrates the unique geological heritage of the Jurassic coast through immersive experiences and some of the finest fossils from the coast. In 2017 the project decided to merge into MEMO, another project on Portland.
In the early phases of this project, we worked client side, in a team that undertook a substantial phase of interpretation and visitor experience planning and development. We were also responsible for managing, training and growing Jurassica's team of 80 volunteers, and developing and facilitating Jurassica's educational outreach to Dorset community and businesses.
Our work included delivering workshops to adults, families and schools (both mainstream and children with learning difficulties) and culminated in co-organising a four day event on Portland - the 'Sea Monsters Pop-Up' - which was attended by 4500 members of the public.
