Ridgeway Farm Art Project ‘Walk n Talk’ 11 August 2019

Newsletter #1 Summer 2019

Location: Ridgeway Farm Residential Development, Purton, Wiltshire.
Phase One: Community Consultation – now to February 2020 for the residents of Ridgeway Farm and the wider Purton community.
Following the launch of this project at Ridgeway Farm Academy Summer Fair on 13thJuly you are invited to come to:
Walk ‘n’ Talk on Sunday 11thAugust
Meet outside Ridgeway Farm Academy SN5 4GT at 11am
This is an open invitation for you to show me your public open spaces and share with me and the group how you hope these spaces will be used in the future.  
Bring your dog / trainers / wellies / camera / notebook/ sketchbook / friend / binoculars / map / flask…!
The aim is to spend a couple of hours as a group exploring your space – looking at where any art work might go and letting you get to know me and find out more about this project.
Ideas already suggested and open for discussion are;
* Entrance Sculpture * Seating – Meeting Places * Nature Trail * Wildlife Sculpture 
* Community Orchard * Bat Boxes *
This project needs your help!  Do you have an interest in the history of the farm, birds, trees and gardening, nature and wildlife and/or just want to be involved in the art project in some way? 
This project needs a keen photographer to document the project – this could be a student or amateur wanting to develop a project of their own – please get in touch!
I will also be looking for anyone with wood working skills that might be able to help.
No unaccompanied children (or pets!) – please come as a family instead!
