Over the last year and a half, the sanctuary provided by nature reserves and other green spaces has been recognised by many. This exciting new project - a partnership between Art Pop-Up and the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust - will delve deeper into these feelings and provide opportunities for local people to develop their own creative response to the nature reserve.
Throughout July, artist Emily Bowers will investigate the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Deeping Lakes nature reserve. She will learn about the plants and animals that it’s home to, its fascinating history and how it became a nature reserve. Emily will also talk to local groups about their relationship with the space and learn about why it’s precious to so many people.
Then in August, there will be free, fun, creative workshops, walks and talks. There’s an open invitation to local people to join these events and be part of the creative journey.
