Sculptor Chris Jackson and archeologist Sophie Cabot have been locating alcoves, niches and small window spaces. George Ishmail took Chris Jackson on a tour of his 'Heavenly Gardens'.
The events of 2020 made me more determined to create a fun and ambitious long-term art/science/food project for the health of local people and the environment.
Edible East is an exciting new venture to explore the future of food in Norfolk with art, science and horticulture. Bringing twenty-first-century science from Norwich Research Park (NRP) into the heart of the ancient city, providing high-quality opportunities for the public to become involved in.
The Art of the Gut exhibition was launched at the opening of Norwich Science Festival. At The Forum, Norwich, in teh BBC Foyer. Adults last night and children today flocked to hang their drawings of organs, to pin their hope for health onto the giant microbe!
So I have learned a lot from running four family Art of the Gut workshops with Quadram scientists at a small local library. One thing being that when inviting people to join the group,the words gut and bacteria are surprisingly sometimes not attractive!
