Woolly Perspectives on Art and Conservation

woollenlineIn collaboration with artists, Pip Woolf and Kirsty Claxton, we recently conducted 7 discussion groups with the varied participants and stakeholders involved in the Woollen Line Project – an innovative art and conservation project in the Black Mountains.

The groups consisted of school students, local community members, graziers, artists, horse handlers, ecologists, and National Park wardens and management and funding managers.

From a detailed analysis of the participants’ language, the report explores a variety of issues – the significance of hands-on experience, the complexities of ownership and responsibility, conflicting perspectives on a shared problem and the way an evolving, open-ended project challenges evaluation and funding structures.
