THG NATURE SHORTS

When we temporarily closed during Lockdown 1, we moved our public programme into the digital realm. The aim was to support our artistic community and also reach out to new audiences.

As part of our Culture + Climate programme 2020, we teamed up with East Devon AONB to share NATURE SHORTS: an online series showcasing art practices which inspire, build creativity and deepen our connection with nature.

NATURE SHORTS explored how we can connect with nature, particularly during a period of isolation, sharing different artistic approaches to land and space. The highlighted artists worked across a range of materials and processes including land art, photography, printmaking and performance.
