folly, Art Locates Me and the Forestry Commission, Grizedale are collaborating to create a unique residential opportunity for a group of young carers from across Cumbria to engage with digital technology, sustainable energy and the forest environment.
The partnership is inviting expressions of interest from artists to participate in 3 days research and development from 6th - 8th November 2009 at Grizedale Forest, Cumbria. The remit for the 3 days is to consult with the partner organisations and the group of young carers to develop ideas for creating and installing digital art in Grizedale Forest on a temporary basis.
These ideas will be used to create Pod Camp, a series of residential opportunities for the artist and young people to develop the ideas further. Pod Camp will be launched in April 2010 and will take place at Grizedale Forest as part of the Abandon Normal Devices festival.
The work will build upon the success of the previous partnerships between Art Locates Me and folly to create innovative digital arts work with young people and utilise the expertise of the Forestry Commission in working with the environment and sustainable energy.
