Can the arts help foster a nationwide love affair with nature? 

Be the first to favourite this.

The Oak Project hopes to boost nature connectedness among over 500,000 people this year, starting with a new installation at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Silence – Alone in a World of Wounds, the Oak Project’s debut artist commission. Uncoincidentally, the installation from Heather Peak and Ivan Morison welcomes its first visitors on World Environment Day.
