New Networks for Nature
CELEBRATING THE NATURAL WORlD
We are a broad alliance of creators, including poets, authors, scientists, film makers, visual artists, environmentalists, musicians and composers, whose work draws strongly on the natural environment.
Our annual meetings grew out of dissatisfaction with the low political priority placed upon nature in the UK. Today our wildlife and landscapes are so often evaluated exclusively in economic or scientific terms when, in fact, they are a resource at the very heart of human creativity. The natural world is central to the nation’s cultural life.
New Networks for Nature wishes to reflect these truths and celebrate them.
2018 10th Anniversary Event
Nature Matters 2018:
Creating Connections took place between 15-17 November at the Stamford Arts Centre. It was an inspiring look at how new prose, poetry, music, politics and work in the visual arts can change and enrich our responses to the natural world.
Thank you to everyone who came and we hope to see you all next year in York - 31st October to 2nd November 2019. Details to follow.
