Fermynwoods Contemporary Art is the only visual arts organisation in Northamptonshire that commissions innovative and meaningful ways for inter-disciplinary artists to engage with audiences in public spaces across the county and online.

We are the only visual arts organisation in Northamptonshire with an expertise in delivering innovative mainstream/alternative education and professional development programmes.

As the only peripatetic arts organisation working across this rural county, we work innovatively through:

• Locating artists in residence in new contexts, such as workplaces, woodlands, nature reserves, pubs, cafes and a football stadium

• Bringing artists into diverse communities, such as ramblers and wildlife groups, astronomical societies, local council employees and river bank communities

• Working with inter-disciplinary artists who use new and digital technology to explore and respond to our social and natural environments

• Initiating discussions between artists and professionals from other sectors outside the visual arts including, activism, business, computing, data analysis, ecology, health and law.
