Visit to Grizedale Arts

Grizedale Arts is a long established curatorial project based around Coniston, a village in the Lake District of North West England. We had the opportunity to visit for 2 days to discuss their innovative and challenging approach to an art project. Our visit included a tour of their farm, a meal prepared with food from that farm and other local sources, discussions about the art world, visit to the Ruskin museum and lots of tea drinking!
Grizedale Arts challenges many of the preconceived ideas of what the art world is or should be, this visit was invaluable for exploring this.

Big thanks to Alistair Hudson, Pippa Martin and Adam Sutherland.


An amazing example of John Ruskin‘s ‘powerpoints’ of the Victorian age. These huge drawings were used in his lectures to illustrate his points and also handed around the audience.
