SPARK #24: Dunham Massey Walk

1 June 2024 / 11:00-13:00

Jane Andrews will lead a short easy walk (2.5miles) across farmland near Dunham Massey. Jane will talk about the transformation in agricultural techniques designed to improve the environment and increase biodiversity plus some of the history of the area. On the walk we will see wildlife and ecological work that has been done to make habitats bigger, better and more joined up. Meet at the Dunham Massey Visitor Centre at 11am. We will be walking whatever the weather, and the ground may be muddy so please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

Jane Andrews @janeelizabethart is a photographer and film maker inspired by the natural world with a particular interest in landscape and nature. Jane has volunteered at Dunham Massey for 6 years.

The SPARK network was set up by Castlefield Gallery in 2022 to facilitate a Greater Manchester/North West-based network of artists wanting to intervene in the climate crisis. The gallery initiated SPARK in response to the high demand for places on the 2021/22 SUSTAIN programme focussed on low carbon artmaking.

SPARK #24 follows on from the first twenty three SPARK sessions at Manchester Art Gallery, Rogue, The Birley (Preston), Eccles Friends Meeting House, Manchester Museum, AIR Gallery, Paradise Works, Editional Studio, Cadishead and Little Woolden Moss, Gallery Oldham and the John Rylands Library. SPARK recently had a group exhibition, also called SPARK, and events programme at Rogue Studios.
