Exhibition News!

We’re so very excited to be in the final stages of preparation for the Sense of Here exhibition. Given the uncertainty of events this year, we’re delighted that we are able to share work from the project in the beautiful galleries at Grizedale Forest. The exhibition opens on October 1st, and runs until December 13th.

The last few weeks have been quite full on! We’ve been in printing, scribbling, drawing and composing captions, and we’ve been supported working by a wonderful team of experts to collate the final material: including map design, wood carving and detailed data analysis.

Join us online, October 6th

We are going to have a virtual launch party with a short film, a brief exhibition tour and a Live Q&A on October 6th, 6.30-7.30pm. The event is being hosted by the wonderful Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), and is free to attend, but you do need to register. If you’re curious, follow this link to the exhibition event. You can post a question in advance of the event, or join the chat on the evening.

Visit the show

While the online event will give a flavour of the work on show, the best way to experience is to visit the gallery, if you’re able to. There will be hand-printed black-and-white images, hand-drawn pieces, data visualisations, poetry and colour images, as well as the actual canvas that travelled with us throughout 2019, and a large cross section of sycamore … The galleries are open daily 10am-1pm and 1.45-4pm.
