A Fair Land

Projects start in April with a garden project and a series of seminars and 'making' weeks being programmed – updates on Facebook

The programme will result in the building of a model village complete with industry, education, housing and a growing field. Many arists that Grizedale works with will join forces with volunteers, community groups and several Irish based artists - including Public Works, Somewhere, Michelle Darmody, Ryan Gander, Jonathan Meese, Gareth Kennedy, Deadre Mahoney, Renzo Martens, Suzanne Lacy and many more.

Opportunities for volunteers and interns from March onwards.
