Event 1: Dalby Forest

KeyMaker: Professor Mike Collier, University of Sunderland

Dalby Forest is set in the North Yorkshire Moors and we have kindly been given use of the workshops located opposite the visitor centre. Professor Mike Collier is our keymaker (alternative keynote) whose research focuses on art, walking and a phenomenological examination of the environment. We are inviting participants to come for the day; present your creative work and spend time researching and making in the forest with discussions on developing creative work.  We welcome applications on any theme relating to SelfScapes.
