Join with us to find art on our doorstep environment on Instagram
There are just a few advantages and gains from lock-down. The environment has won out. Not only are there fewer nasty emissions from airplanes and cars to pollute the air, but our slower pace of life has enabled us to see more. Daily walks have made people more observant. Nature has flourished with so much heavy blossom on the trees and wild flowers abundant in every patch of grass. Even cracks in the pavement have been hosting little plants.
So, do join in with our Instagram 30 day challenge. Or, if you don’t want to contribute directly, then watch the growing virtual exhibition of contributions on the #doorstepenvironment

Continuing to find more art on our doorstep environment
It is always a key aim for GroundWork exhibitions and events to have an impact on our thinking about the environment. When we return to full operations, we hope in the autumn, we will be running some new events. Thanks to an Arts Project Grant from Norfolk County Council some of them will be free or at minimal cost. Look out for a family event to explore the environment artistically. We will also begin a Creative Remaking workshop series to explore new skills. And Write for the Environment will continue.
