An interesting art project, Exploring Landscapes, by Creativity Works, has just started with seven artist residencies to creatively explore six parks in Pennine, Lancashire. They will be working with community groups to explore the ways in which people think about their parks, and they ‘hope to unearth stories, myths and memories from the local people who know the area best’.
Interestingly the seventh artist, Lawrence Molloy, will use digital technologies, via the Aleph Project, to engage with the work of the other six artists to create interactive treasure hunts. It will be fascinating to see the results of a project which actively and creatively explores the tangible and intangible components of a particular type of landscape but links across six different sites.
If you live locally I am sure it would be a great project to get involved in….
