How You Can Get Involved
The installation will launch a 2 year project – we are inviting you to create your own activities in response to this extraordinary location. Ideas 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….We already have a number of activities planned for the first couple of years collaborating with artist Buzz Mitchell, Aldeburgh Festival, Worlingworth Primary School and Rural Coffee Caravan.
The aim is to get as many people as possible, of all ages, to take part. We have been awarded funding to enable events for the first year to be free of charge and will continue to seek funds as future projects develop. Details will be posted on this website nearer the time.
“I want the artwork itself to take your breath away; I want the whole project to get people thinking and feeling about their interrelatedness to the natural environment and discover how art can be what connects them.”
Be a Project Supporter
We are hugely grateful to have been awarded funds from Scarfe Charitable Trust, The Amenity and Accessibility Fund, Nichol Young Foundation, The Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB Sustainable Development Fund, Hawke Optics, The Wentworth Hotel (Aldeburgh) and more than 40 individuals. This enabled us to green light the project, book the builders and start working on the artwork as well as to
plan the installation.
The most recent achievement is to have received an award from Arts Council England. This fantastic result means we can now start developing the project to its full potential – in particular the activities which are about encouraging lots of people to get involved.
AND WE ARE still seeking funds to be able to deliver ALL the activities that we are planning as well as for some specific items – such as the interpretation display boards that need to be planted on site and a glossy project catalogue that we plan to produce later on documenting the process with beautiful photographs.
Please do consider making a contribution – you could sponsor a display board, contribute to the production of the catalogue or donate towards an activity engaging school children in discovering more about their environment and local heritage – for example.
