In August, hosted students from Dartington’s MA Arts & Place in residence at High Cross House. This residency formed part of their course.

On Tuesday August 3 at  14.00 BST/UTC+1 we welcomed Rob & Harriet Fraser (somewhere-nowhere).  You can watch the video of the session below.

Somewhere-nowhere is an environmental art and research practice. We use the power of curiosity, pause, collaborative research and public events to engage with elements that give a sense of place, and let stories gradually reveal themselves. Sometimes these are stories of joy and wonder, they may shine a light on cultural heritage, or on struggle or loss. 

Our creative projects use photography, poetry, art, walking and research focused on sensitive environments and cultures. Self-led and commissioned projects lead to exhibitions, books, presentations and lectures, public events and land-art, both temporary and permanent. We work alongside scientists, farmers and analysts and public organisations concerned with environmental work, landscape care and rural policies; we enjoy being part of university research teams; and we run residencies in rural spaces. 

Somewhere-nowhere has five guiding principles: journey – pause – reflect – respond – connect.

If you would like to join us as our guest, in person or online, please find the information here. As we will most likely be indoors for this event please be prepared to wear a mask or face covering. We are not able to grant access to the building without this.
