Landscaping Change

What happens when the places we know change? Whether they are caused by environmental events, regeneration and conservation initiatives, or development spurred by business, changes to the material fabric of place can subtlety alter or deeply disturb the experience of those whose sense of identity and feelings of belonging may be entangled with that place.

During 2015-2016, Landscaping Change hosted a series of events, following by a conference, which explored the meaning of place for the diverse people who live, work, or play there.

In the next stage of the project, Landscaping Change will build networks with writers, artists, humanities scholars and local community groups and charities, in order to explore how we value and respond to place, and how such care and concern can inform thinking on how changes to environments can be made to work for local wildlife and connected ecologies, and for local people.
