East Area Meet Up: Sensing Nature

This will be an informal opportunity to meet other members of Engage in your area whilst exploring the Sensing Nature exhibition at Babylon Arts.

Sensing Nature celebrates work made with local communities who have creatively engaged with the heritage and significance of the Fenland landscape, in partnership with Ely Museum, RNIB and Wicken Fen. Curated by Basecoat Collective – a group of artists aged 15-25 years – the exhibition invites you to contemplate the personal connections and relationships you hold with nature through looking, listening, touching and tasting.

Artworks include a new sound installation co-produced by Composer Tom Adams and participants from Camsight and Vision Norfolk, 3D printed fossils developed through Artist Kaitlin Ferguson’s engagement with teachers and pupils from Highfields Littleport Academy, and over 50 drawings, sculptures and sound pieces selected from an open call. Sensing Nature has been made possible with funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Meet up attendees will hear from Lucy Wheeler, Programme Coordinator and young curators on the programme.

The event is FREE to attend but registration is required via Eventbrite.
