We are starting to develop projects bringing together our creative partners with children and young people.
We are part of The Wild Escape – a nationwide project for museums and schools to picture the future of the UK’s wildlife through art and museum objects. We are working with local primary schools through the Spring, and inviting children to create natural sculptures inspired by the wildlife and their habitats found in our grounds and museum. These sculptures will be mounted into a giant land art installation on Earth Day on Saturday 22 April, where we will invite the public to join us to create this installation. The project is led by local artist and sculptor, Rebecca Child; biodiversity expert, Pete the Pond; and our Arts and Education Manager, Rebecca Ainscough.
‘The Wild Escape is made possible by lead support from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Art Fund’
