Blackdown Hills Natural Futures

To bring to a close their 3 year project, the Blackdown Hills Natural Futures (BHNF) team have engaged Daisi in January 2017 to create an opportunity for local primary school engagement.  The schools within this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) will produce art work that reflects the project’s learning around this unique landscape.

Working with Daisi, artist Monica Shanta Brown and the education team at BHNF will work with ten local primary schools.  The half-day workshops will use a range of stimuli that have come from learning about the local environment and the creatures that live within its different habitats.  There will be a further five whole day sessions, during which five of the schools will deepen their engagement, enabling children to develop their art work further and produce large-scale panels that will be put on public exhibition in the autumn 2017.
