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.

The venue chosen to host the work is Yorkshire Sculpture Park, a site which welcomes around half a million visitors in a normal year and dedicates just as much care and attention to the rolling countryside estate it inhabits as to its diverse arts programming.

The rhythm of the streets

2021-07-08 18:00

Online

Walking lays the rhythm of the streets, archives the voice and the memory of the city. Our feet are an instrument, and they read the sonic composition of urban space. Our listening revitalizes social space. By walking we connect our body with the body of the city, as players and listeners of an urbanophonic orchestra - conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
