Interacting with Of Earth and Sky
Use the map to plan your route. Maybe aim to walk or cycle between a number of sites in a day. At each of the artworks you will find a sign displaying a QR code (and a short URL link for those without scanning capabilities). Follow the link and you’ll find the poem in its entirety to enjoy.
Each artwork offers great photo opportunities. Share your photos on social media. Tag 20-21 Visual Arts Centre and use the hashtag #OfEarthandSkyNL. We’ll share a selection of your pictures, and at the end of the project will choose one photo at random to win a prize. More details shortly, but in the meantime, get sharing!
The Creation of Of Earth and Sky
We invited our communities of all ages to express themselves and share their poems through an open call out. We received a huge number of submissions of all types and themes of poetry, and from these submissions were selected the phrases that have been used in the sculpture trail. All submissions have been invited to be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 voucher for the Rabbit Hole Brigg for an adult and a child. Schools have the chance of winning a £50 book voucher from Madeleine Lindley.
The presentation of Of Earth and Sky is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
