    Land/Change is part of the Landscaping Change project, funded by the British Academy. Landscaping Change’s purpose is to build a network of writers, artists, humanities scholars and local community groups and charities, in order to explore how we value and respond to place, and to ask how recent environmental interventions have been informed, and could in future be enriched, by arts and humanities approaches.

Description:

Land/Change is a micro-festival dedicated to teaching, learning and performances. It brings together writers, artists, local organisers and academics working with communities around the world to explore creative, critical and activist responses to landscapes and places under processes of change. 'Places' may be defined by histories which are both culturally celebrated and traumatic, and talks and presentations will address the ways in which arts and humanities approaches can be used to respond to environmental change and to help empower communities to determine their future.
