Dorset AONB Talking Tent

Talks and conversations

  • 20-24 September 2023
  • Bere Regis

This is a past event

Curated and facilitated by artists, the Talking Tent will offer informal conversation, discussion and activities.

Talking Tent was created as part of Dorset AONB’s (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) 60th anniversary activities in 2021. It offers a space to weave together threads of thinking and conversations about the living landscape of Dorset. Do you have a special place, a fond memory, a story from times past? Do you feel a connection to Dorset’s outstanding landscape and places? If so ‘pitch up’ to the Talking Tent at Wild Woodbury where you are invited to share stories, memories and hopes for the future.

The festival location has some uneven paved areas but mostly consists of undulating grassland, fields and rough tracks.

On Saturday 23 September there will be Audio Desciption, tactile tours and a BSL interpreter for performances of Songs for a Shifting Soil and Five Seasons. Please meet at the main information desk thirty minutes before the performance for more information.

Volunteers will also be available to provide help and information.
