The Artistic Forager

This is a past event which has now ended.

In connection with GroundWork Gallery’s exhibition FieldWork, this will be an afternoon of talking and walking with artist-collective haptic/tacit. These artists are adept at investigating their surroundings, closely observing and finding things, crafting and assembling, using research, resourcefulness and adaptation.

The haptic/tacit founding members Jane Cairns, Grant Aston and Kim Norton will give an exclusive tour of the exhibition FieldWork, discussing some of the skills needed to maintain an expanded creative practice in tune with the environment and in challenging times.

Afterwards we will take a walk through the town and discuss the artists’ responses to creative opportunities its environment suggests to them.

Festival Futures – 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 arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
