COLLISION & CONFLICT
Green Croft Arts are looking to commission 8 artists, at different points in their career, to have a creative response in song, music, sound, story, spoken word or poetry that explores the commonality between historical or archaeological conflict and issues that affect contemporary rural communities today. As people walk through the landscape these artistic responses unfold as part of an immersive geolocative experience linking the responses to a specific location along the walk
We are seeking artists with strong links to Northumberland and Cumbria. We are also looking to artists that reflect the past diversity of the communities that built, manned and lived along Hadrian’s Wall. Asturians (northern Spain) at Chesters and Dacians (Romania) at Birdoswald, Syrians at Housesteads, and a cohort of Mauri from north west Africa recorded at Burgh-by-Sands.
