Lincolnshire Landscapes

Launch event

Lincolnshire Landscapes was built around the Impact Fellowship commissioned artwork by Simon Read. The aim was to create a day of talks and creative practice inspired by the landscape of Lincolnshire. The day concluded with a reception to mark the official 'launch' of Simon Read's artwork A Map of Alkborough Flats and the Humber Estuary to explore the processes impacting upon the decision to establish a Managed Realignment Site (2012) installed in the School of Geography at Nottingham in 2013.

A small selection of feedback:

Thanks for an excellent day on Tuesday... As always, I learnt a vast amount, and the issues and discussions will feed into my own writing and teaching for a long time.
 Just wanted to say what a really interesting and enlightening day we had on Tuesday.
Thank you for an excellent day. I thought the range of contributions was very engaging and I was especially pleased to be introduced to the work of Jon McGregor and Mike Pearson. The Programme's commissions have produced impressive outcomes.
