Maryport Literary Festival

Looking forward to bringing images, stories and poems inspired by the seven Long View trees to this event, considering 'tree time', the creative, emotional and spiritual effects of walking and slow time outdoors, and what trees mean as part of the bigger, interconnected landscape.
Later in the afternoon Harriet will be joining other poets to read from the new 'This Place I Know' anthology of Cumbrian poetry.

The Annual Explore event: RGS with IBG, London

This weekend event is always full of inspiration. It's here that stories are shared, ideas are born and chewed through, and teams are built ... we'll be taking part and dreaming up our own new ideas over the weekend. Not to be missed if you have any inkling about travel, research, epeditions or adventure, whether your 'field' is your back yard, your local woods, or the other side of the world. More info here.

Sheffield Halham University : The Long View - Meetings with Seven Remarkably Ordinary Trees

So happy to bringing tales of seven Cumbrian trees and the land around them to Sheffield as part of the RGS lecture series. We'll share images, poetry and reflections from our two years with seven particular trees as part of The Long View: our walks to and between them, and what we have learned about the local environments, land use and issues of sustainability in England's largest national park. Plenty of time for questions and discussions.

Walk and talk around Millom

Come and join us for a leisurely walk around Millom, taking a close look at what's along the way.

This is part of the Moving Mountains project.
10am-1pm Book through email: movingmountainsmillom@gmail.com. Oh, and it's free :)

Spoken word: inspired by islands, island life, and the meetings of sea and land

Really looking forward to a gathering to listen to writings inspired by island life, organised through the Stromness Writing Group. As part of an open evening of sharing, Harriet will read some of the writing she's done while sailing, including call-and-response exchanges with writers in Cumbria and Orkney. Venue and details TBC nearer the time.

Reflections on rocks, sailing, light, water and more ...

After our ten days sailing along the coast, exploring cliffs, caves and shorlines, and learning about the sea, the crew will be sharing geology-inspired discoveries, images, hand-made artwork and plenty of stories at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, 7-8pm.

Artist & Geology Talk, Lochinver

Delighted to be getting together with enthusiasts from the North West Highlands Geopark in Lochinver - and we'll be giving a talk in the evening. 

August 19

Sail Britain Launch Party, Ullapool

You can't set sail without a party ... if you'd like to come and celebrate with us, talk to the geologists about what's making them so excited about the incredibly ancient rocks we'll be seeing, or get an idea of what might happen when you mix geologists, a poet, a photographer, a fine artist and a skilled skipper, come and find us in the evening while the boat is being readied in Ullapool. 

August 18 to August 28

Artist residency, sailing up the NW coast of Scotland

So very excited - we'll be joining a team of geologists and a fine artist on a ten-day sailing trip from Ullapool to Orkney, hugging the dramatic coast, creating as we go along. Not sure what the outcomes will be but we'll be sharing them at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness when we arrive! The trip is being organised by Oliver at Sail Britain, whose Coastline Project is linking artists and scientists on the way around the whole of the UK. 

July 20 to July 21

The Millican Travel Collective

We're delighted to be among the presenters at this special event bringing people together to celebrate inspiration from the outdoors, and take a leisurely approach to sharing stories and talking through environment, place, sustainability, travel, slowing down, joy ... and lots more besides. There will be great food, a camp fire, and great company. Find out more and book through Millican here.
