Led by stewardship organisations National Trust, Forestry Commission England, Canal & River Trust and Churches Conservation Trust in partnership with Exeter University, Practice, Place Purpose is a one day symposium exploring the purpose and practice of place-based contemporary arts commissioning and its impact.

Speakers include: Keynote by Katherine Clarke, MUF Architecture/art with further contributions and provocations by Professor Andrew Newman, Prof of Cultural Gerontology at the University of Newcastle and Chrissie Tiller, a writer, thinker, teacher and advisor.

A storytelling picnic lunch will be served by artists Natasha Rosling and Vilma Loustarinen as a shared celebration of the local landscape. Expect an exploration of the poetic connections between food, place and the human body.
