Maiden Castle in Dorset AONB takes centre stage in a powerful new film celebrating the region’s beauty

Dorset AONB’s Maiden Castle takes centre stage in a powerful new short film celebrating the region’s beauty – safeguarding it for future generations.

Local people can still support Green Space Dark Skies by submitting their own stories of landscape memories.

A powerful new film is celebrating an extraordinary gathering that took place in Maiden Castle, Dorset AONB last month. Artists and community groups from around the region came together on 11 June, as part of the UK- wide project Green Space Dark Skies, led by Activate Performing Arts and Walk the Plank as part of the UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK festival.

Together, they explored Dorset AONB’s extraordinary landscape by making a magical journey at dusk. Across a stunning tableau of poetry & performance, music & dance and low impact light art they created something truly remarkable. This gathering was captured and is now released as a film available to watch here.

Green Space Dark Skies has been designed to draw attention to how we safeguard the future of our countryside and our rights to access it. The Dorset event was one of a series being made at rural locations across the UK. And there are still opportunities for people to get involved by submitting their own experiences and memories of being in the landscape to the Green Space Dark Skies’ citizen science survey: https://greenspacedarkskies.uk/green-space-stories/.
