Working with somewhere-nowhere on The Long View
It's been a fascinating few weeks working with Harriet and Rob Fraser of somewhere-nowhere as two years of work on The Long View has culminated in a book, an exhibition and plans to create a legacy with three treefolds across Cumbria as part of the 2018 Charter for Trees, Woods and People.
As well as press releases and dealing with media enquiries, there's been liaison with partners at Grizedale Forest, Common Ground, the Woodland Trust and other organisations and a lot of social media activity to ensure that Harriet's posts from the first treefold and Rob's images capturing the build have reached a broader audience.
There's still more to come - the exhibition at Grizedale runs until the end of August and then goes on tour, Harriet and Rob are giving a number of artists' talks about the project and its wider (and deeper) implications and there are still two more treefolds to be built - treefold:east near Little Asby and treefold:west in Wasdale.
