The Lark Descending exhibition

Exhibition by Ackroyd & Harvey accompanied by a programme of talks and workshops

The Lark Descending exhibition is free and open to the public from 10 – 27 May 2018, 11am – 5pm.

This interactive space will evolve with more artworks introduced as the artists explore the layers of Leith Hill. A programme of talks and workshops will explore and excavate Leith Hill’s specific history, geology, ecology and culture.

The reception on the 10 May will have a musical composition by artist Graeme Miller, performed live with virtuoso violinist Calina de la Mare.

The closing event on 27 May will have a special musical contribution by Golden Globe nominated composer, Jocelyn Pook.

Air | Terra | Soil | Water | Clay | Oil

The exhibition will be augmented by a series of talks, workshops and discussions covering, respectively, the protected flora and fauna of Leith Hill; the importance of soil for plant growth; decomposition and carbon capture; psycho-social dreaming and our innate connection with the land; and the on-going mission of A Voice for Leith Hill, Leith Hill Action Group and campaigners to protect and preserve the land.  The talks are free and can be booked on our What’s On page.
