Love + Light

We’re pleased to announce Love + Light, our new thematic programme of activity.

Where there is little doubt that today’s children will inherit a world with complex social-environmental challenges as a result of living with climate breakdown, art can play a role in shining a light on these issues whilst providing spiritual nourishment, attending to and transforming emotions, creating hope, responsibility, care and solidarity with one another and the planet.

Love + Light will see a programme of light-based artistic interventions across Northamptonshire addressing the climate crisis by fostering awareness, inspiring action, and cultivating a deeper connection with the Earth and its inhabitants, promoting solace and the sense that we are part of something greater than ourselves.

Funded in part by the Northamptonshire Creative Climate Action Fund, artists include Pale Blue Dot Collective, Chiara Dellerba, Beccy Mccray, Felix Loftus and more to be announced; including a new podcast series curated by Marie-Chantal Hamrock and Astrid Björklund, with accompanying videos by Sapphire Goss.

This theme will extend to our education work and by cross-fertilising programmes we will provide access to high quality art and artists for new audiences, reaching families and community groups through our work with young people in mainstream and non-mainstream schools.
