2010-2016 Soil Culture

CCANW’s Soil Culture programme 2013-16

Soil Culture was an arts programme devised to inspire a deeper public understanding of the importance of soil. Developed in partnership with Falmouth University, it comprised of a research phase, an artist residency phase and a touring exhibition phase. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and the British Society of Soil Science, it became the UK’s most significant contribution to the UN International Year of Soils 2015

CCANW at Haldon Forest

Between 2006-13 we operated from a timber building in the Haldon Forest near Exeter. Our programme of exhibitions and activities ranged from exploring our sentiments towards forests, promoting the use of local timber in architecture to eco-fashion. Several academic partnerships were established, notably with Oxford Brookes University and the University of the Trees and with Manchester and Sheffield Universities over ‘Greenhouse Britain’, featuring the work of the eminent ecological artists the Harrisons (image above). From the start we were supported by Arts Council England and attracted around 40,000 visitors a year
