Artist William Arnold is looking for people to test drive a field trip to Luxulyan Valley and the surrounding area. The field trip will explore the valley from the Port of Par to the Treffry viaduct/aqueduct, not far from Luxulyan Village.
The walk will look beyond the obvious drama of this UNESCO World Heritage site and investigate the diverse socio-political, historical and environmental aspects that contribute to the contemporary use and cultural perceptions of this landscape.
The proposed route is approximately eight miles and the walk will take four to five hours. The terrain is varied, rural and often muddy. Participants will need to be physically able, with suitable clothing and footwear, and should bring a packed lunch.
There are a limited number of places. If you would like to participate please email William: [email protected]
This field trip is being developed as part of the Groundwork programme, a three-year project bringing outstanding art and artists to Cornwall, supported by Arts Council England. Field trips and workshops during 2016 and 2017 are building towards a high-profile programme of commissions and sited work in 2018.
