GREAT NEWS! Walking Forest has been awarded ACE funding as part of a major bid Season for Change co-ordinated by Julie’s Bicycle and ArtsAdmin. We heard the news as we undertook our second vigil at the Batheaston Pine tree, planted by Rose-Lamartine Yates in 1909. So thrilled to be on the move with this project – a collaboration with Ruth Ben-Tovim, Shelley Castle and Lucy Neal. Definitely more on this later including a website – we have so much to share already on this project. 2020 will also be filled with Tidelines, research and development phase for a creative research hub for Exmouth exploring the changing estuary and marine ecosystem working with Jo Salter and University of Exeter on an Erasmus+ funded project Socially Engaged Universities (SEU) and with support from my fellowship with SWCTN.
