Places for art and art for places

The Landscape and Arts Network has announced a one day symposium for artists and designers whose practice focuses around place-orientated art. The event will take place on the 28th June 2014 and is part of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival. From public art and social engagement, to painting, poetry, projection and sound, a diversity of art projects will be presented which explore the spirit of place through either physically working in the landscape or taking inspiration from it.

Whatever the media, whether directed by a cultural, historical, physical or ecological context, the emphasis of discussion will focus on the artists unique approach and interpretation of place.
