Participants Sought for Meander
Taking part in Meander
What it is?
Meander is a project by ADEPT (artists Shanaz Gulzar and Steve Manthorp) commissioned by Chrysalis Arts as part of their Slow Art commissioning strand.
Meander will be created by many voluntary participants. They will choose the route of a marathon walk within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Pairs of volunteers (who can be part of a larger group) will walk a roughly two hour section between chosen start and end points, whilst recording the walk from their own perspectives on headband-mounted video cameras.
The two recordings will be edited together into a synchronised, split-screen movie showing where the wearers were looking and what engaged their interest at every moment.
The artwork produced will comprise the walk itself, the video (or at least, sections of it) and a touring exhibition featuring various aspects of the walk including maps and a ‘walk diary’. The artists hope that their artwork will encourage its audience to abandon the gallery and enjoy the landscape for themselves.
You can book a walk by talking to the artists, 07507-400489 or 07816-526121 or directly through the Meander website: www.adeptprojects.co.uk.

Chrysalis Arts have been appointed as art consultants to provide advice to the Sowerby Gateway design team and identify opportunities for public art. Sowerby Gateway has been chosen as Hambleton District Council’s preferred option for development within the Local Development Framework and Yorkshire-based developer, Castlevale, together with Broadacres will develop the site for mixed use over the next 16 years, subject to planning approval.
Chrysalis Arts are producing a public art strategy with guidance on planning, commissioning and funding art to integrate with the development which will include housing built to Code 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) .
The development of Sowerby Gateway will involve public consultation and artists will engage local people creatively in the process through participation in art workshops. The first workshops were held at the Old Court House, on 12 and 13 July 2010. All those who are interested in public art and its place in the Sowerby Gateway scheme are welcome to attend future workshops. For more information, please contact: email@example.com
