How You Can Get Involved
The installation launches a 2 year project. We are inviting you to offer ideas and / or to create your own activities in response to this extraordinary location. Suggestions so far have included: drawing in the wild, walks with the artist, children composing music inspired by the environment, storytelling events, making a short film, researching, writing, working with children to make a window for their school. You do not have to be an artist and the activity can be as simple as a picnic!
We already have a number of activities planned collaborating with artists Buzz Mitchell and Perienne Christianne, Aldeburgh Music Festival, Worlingworth and Middleton Primary Schools and Rural Coffee Caravan. Some of these will be able to go ahead albeit with smaller groups. Others will go on hold whilst Covid restrictions remain in place or until Spring 2021 if weather dependent. Some will need reimagining altogether.
You will soon be able to watch a short film about the project on YouTube. There will be a link from this web site. Going on line opens up a far wider reach than we might otherwise have achieved and crosses barriers of age, geography, disablility, culture etc.
Be a Project Supporter
We are hugely grateful to have been awarded funds by Arts Council England, six local trusts, two companies and over 40 individuals. For a full list please refer to …. page. This has enabled us to complete every step of the project up to this point and leaves us with a little bit in the pot for some of the first year’s activities but not enough. We still need funds either to continue to deliver what we have planned or to develop new ideas about how to do this in a way that is relevant for these times.
Since starting this project the world has changed! Most arts funding is being directed into rescuing institutions and groups that can be saved and ensuring that artists have enough to eat and a studio to work in. However I am crystal clear that enabling people to experience joyful art in this wonderful landscape is beneficial to all our mental and physical health, never more so than now, and that any activities we can deliver in collaboration with other artists, teachers, event organisers, children, filmmakers, picnicers …..are more than worth the money.
