How You Can Take Part
- Visit the chapel and its fabulous location. You can walk from Eastbridge, Dunwich Cliff NT, Sizewell Beach or RSPB Visitor Centre. Each of these has a pub or cafe. (RSPB have mobility scooters that can be booked to go most of the way in dry weather but there is still likely to be a bit of walking involved.)
- Watch the short film posted on this web site and send the link to your friends. Not everyone will be able to visit the site for a variety of reasons. The film enables us to cross barriers of age, geography, disablility, culture and Covid!
- Please send any unusual photos that you might have taken of the artwork and surrounding area to Arabella for possible inclusion onto the Gallery page.
- Please send any comments, questions, feedback or ideas for future activities inspired by the location and the artwork to Arabella.
- We welcome donations to phase two of the project. This is all about encouraging people to enjoy the artwork and natural environment in all sorts of different ways as well as to find out more about the intriguing history of Minsmere. To read more scroll down past the image.

We already have a number of activities planned collaborating with artists Buzz Mitchell and Perienne Christianne, Britten Pears Arts, Worlingworth and Middleton Primary Schools and Rural Coffee Caravan. Some of these will be able to go ahead with social distancing. Others will go on hold whilst Covid restrictions remain in place or until the prevailing weather is more condusive. Some will need reimagining altogether.
We would love to hear any ideas that YOU have. Suggestions so far have included: drawing in the wild; walks with the artist; children composing music inspired by the environment; storytelling events; filming the “window” through a day, a week, a year; writing workshops; working with children to make a window for their school; community dancing in the chapel meadow.
We are hugely grateful to have been awarded funds by Arts Council England, six local trusts, two companies and over 50 individuals. For a full list please refer to the Background – Funders 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. 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.
Please make a donation knowing that you are helping to make this possible!
