Photo Gallery: Sense of Here, Harriet and Rob Fraser, Grizedale Forest Galleries, Cumbria
Has the COVID-19 lockdown inspired a renewed love of the outdoors? If so, a new poetic and thought-provoking exhibition at Grizedale Forest Galleries might be your cup of tea.
Sense of Here by Harriet and Robert Fraser was born from walking, slow time outdoors and in-depth enquiries into different elements of landscape. It offers an invitation to see a familiar place from a new perspective and to ask: what next?
The exhibition depicts a year of walking, camping and interviews with experts in different fields of knowledge. Through photography, poetry and installations and creative mapping, it brings together a variety of landscapes and multiple viewpoints and embraces the challenge of making meaningful change. Considering the environmental pressures of a changing climate and declining biodiversity, Sense of Here asks how do we work together and go forward?

“The need for us is still there.” At 28, Junior Akinola is the first person under 30 to chair a board of a major performing arts venue in the UK.
