Art Gene’s 2019 Summer Programme

 

Art Gene’s Summer programme invites you to further explore the natural and industrial spaces around Barrow and Furness, immerse yourself in this nationally significant location for nature and join us in conversation and learning about your area. Extreme Views Pt. 2 offers you the opportunity to join us for shared walks, free food and the chance to hear from locals and experts about the important features of this place and it’s potential futures, all set against ‘extreme’ views of the coastal landscape. There is also the chance to join in with free family nature activities and regular community work days on our Allotment Soup site, the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space. Join us in conversation and exploration, and to contribute your views, to the unique heritage and future of this place.
