Imprinted Place: picturing labour and landscape in a changing environment

A year long art making project looking at the past, present and future of farming in North Shropshire.

The heart of this project is exploring the role of creativity in engaging people in conversations about changes to the rural environment and their connection to farming landscapes. Creative workshops and exhibitions will provide opportunities for groups to appreciate printmaking as an art form, spend time considering their own connection to the local landscape and translate this into artworks. 

There will be an exhibition of the artwork in Spring 2025.


The project will also feed in to developing a future programme of artists’ residencies in agricultural settings.

Residencies on farms


Time will be spent gathering research through residencies: drawing the farming day and developing a visual language to depict the current realities of rural labour. The project will look at how artists have historically depicted rural life, and seek to develop new ways to picture farming for the current changes to nature and climate friendly practices.
