Our young people's group Circuit Conductors and artist Kate Munro will lead a series of drop in workshops for our New Geographies project.
New Geographies is three year project led by Wysing on behalf of the East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN). It started with an open call, asking people living in the East of England to nominate overlooked or unexpected places in the region that they find meaningful and interesting. This will continue until 22 October.
In response to the nominations of places, ECVAN will commission artists – from the UK and internationally – to respond to some of those places with new site-specific work. This combination of local knowledge and world-class art seeks to create a new vision of the East of England as a place to encounter excellent art in unexpected places.
Full details of the project can be found here.

The drop in dates for the workshops are:
9 September, 10am-2pm - Heritage Open Weekend at Chatteris Museum. Led by artist Kate Munro
9 September, 11am- 4pm - Heritage Open Weekend at Peckover House, National Trust, Wisbech. Led by our Circuit Conductors.
23 September, afternoon/evening - Fire & Flint Festival in Brandon. Led by artist Kate Munro.
These workshops are delivered with outreach partners Market Place, 20Twenty Productions and Peckover House in order to encourage nominations from the Fenlands and Forest Heath to the new map of the East.
More details about each workshop will be announced soon.
