Art for the Environment: Artists From AER International Residency Programme

Saturday 16 March – Saturday 8 June

GroundWork Gallery, King's Lynn

Art for the Environment showcases work by some of the most exciting artists emerging today who are drawing attention to our fragile planet. Above all, each one is concentrating on environmental sustainability and biodiversity. However, issues to do with colonial violence, social justice, and their interconnections also comes into their work. Whatever their primary focus, each artist is offering new imaginative relational perspectives between different forms of life.

The exhibition is a collaboration with the AER Art for the Environment international residency programme, launched at the University of the Arts London by Professor Lucy Orta in 2015. GroundWork Gallery has been involved with this programme for 3 years, hosting one artist each summer. It is among a total of 19 host organisations providing a range of immersive experiences for artists and postgraduate students. Each one is working across disciplines, to research and develop creative projects that interrogate concerns that define the 21st century.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
