Engaging with peatland restoration: – Embedded Art practices within Landscape Partnerships.

Eco/art/scot/land is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. The website has recently published an article by Kerry Morrison and myself (Kate Foster) inviting people to ‘watch this space’ for our involvement in restoration work on blanket peatland and raised bogs. This work will be carried out by three Landscape Partnerships in Southern Scotland and Northern England that have been recently funded by the Heritage Lottery Landscape Partnership Fund. Collaborative contacts between the project officers and project artists were launched with a ‘Great Peat Meet’ in Galloway in November 2017. The article gives details of the art projects’ background and proposed activities.
