Art steps up for fragile landscapes

People Land Art Culture and Ecology (PLACE) is bridging with the university's Centre for National Parks and Protected Areas and linking artists with those who work in and on celebrated but often fragile landscapes. Amid pressing concerns over climate change, habitat declines and post Brexit farming, an ambitious five-year mission aims to be a catalyst for shifting dynamics. The PLACE Collective is inspired by the Lake District’s World Heritage success in celebrating cultural heritage.
