Geopark Visiting Artists Day

Join us for a day of workshops, interventions, presentations, and films that respond to the environment of Charnwood Forest Geopark.

LU Arts and Charnwood Forest Geopark invited three artists to engage with this site of globally significant geology, as well as landscape rich with wildlife and heritage.  Following a period of research involving walking, recording and observing the artists will present outputs that offer different perspectives on the natural environment and rich heritage of Charnwood Forest Geopark.

The day, on January 20th, has been structured so that you can attend all three artist events and each is located in different parts of the Geopark. Why not make a day of it starting with Andrea’s workshop, followed by Frances’ talk and presentation and ending with Becky’s moving image work and artistic interventions at Morley Quarry. 

All the events are free. Booking is required for Andrea’s workshop and Frances’ talk. 

Please see individual links to the LU website for further details on the events, the locations, accessibility and online booking.
