Wayfaring - the journey continues - a call out for participants, Wells-next-the-sea


Take part in Wayfaring

Those of you who attended the Inside Out event Wayfaring by artists, And Now: back in 2016 will be interested to know that the project continues in its exploration of the ancient, Icknield Way.

They are staging a Wayfaring event on Wells Beach, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Norfolk in May.

To remind you, Wayfaring is a journey of exploration, inspired by the present landscape and ancient routes of the Icknield Way. Along these routes, artists And Now: will create a series of artworks in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) inviting audiences to think about movement and migration; how we arrive at, understand, inhabit, protect and leave an outdoor space.

Using local and found materials the artists will craft an installation on Wells Beach which audiences can move through, investigate and contribute to. On the final weekend illumination, music and performance will transform the installation in a rousing celebration.

There is an exciting opportunity to take part in this event  on Wells Beach in May
