The RANE (Research in Art, Nature & Enviornment) research group in collaboration with the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW) are holding a ‘Soil Culture Forum’ over four days at Falmouth University’s Woodlane campus. The Forum takes place from 17.00 on Wednesday 02 July to 17.00 on Saturday 05 July 2014.
The ‘Soil Culture Forum’ aims to bring together the creative and literary arts to help raise awareness about the importance of soil and foster an appreciation of its vital importance to humanity and the biosphere. The first section of the Forum will focus on the many different ways that the visual arts engage with soil. This will be followed by two days dedicated to the visual arts, and the final day will focus not simply on the soil itself, but on the cultural narratives that are a conceputal part of soil and, indeed, of ourselves.
