An exciting opportunity for an artist is being funded to capture the progress of peatland restoration at an action site in Yorkshire as part of an ambitious EU project WaterLANDS.
A part-time artistic engagement residency is being funded to work with the restoration team and partners working at the Great North Bog site which spans large parts of northern England.
Professor Joseph Holden, director of iCASP, said: “This project offers creative artists a unique opportunity to work alongside researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders on an ambitious European wide environmental restoration project and to integrate a creative perspective and practice to the overall action.”
The artistic engagement residency will require the artist to reflect on the journey of their particular site, engage communities, increase awareness of the importance of restoration and help to create and share knowledge across the project and beyond.
