About Yarmouth Springs Eternal:
Yarmouth Springs Eternal is a community arts, nature and walking project, led by artist Genevieve Rudd in partnership with originalprojects; in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. The project will run from the Spring Equinox to the Summer Solstice in 2021. It will include a series of artist-led community walks/workshops, a public exhibition, two public walks/ workshops, a one-day conference, and an arts and nature resource pack.
The overall ethos of Yarmouth Springs Eternal project is about connecting with nature and seasons, even in ‘overlooked’ spaces; the importance of this relationship on our wellbeing, the feeling of wholeness and the “awe” of being part of something bigger. The project has grown out of the Spring 2020 lockdown experience. It’s also underpinned by the inequality of access to green space in the UK.
The community walks/workshop audience is adults who have been identified by recent research to have less access to nature yet are more likely to be affected by climate crisis and COVID-19/lockdown. Adults will be referred from Herring House Trust homeless charity and GYROS migrant support agency, or other local groups.
Yarmouth Springs Eternal is funded by Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Arts Council England, East Anglia Art Fund, Norfolk County Council, and Better Together Norfolk.
