1525 Outsider Artist Collective present: 'Under One Sky'Past, Talk, Young People Wed 20 Mar, 6pm–8pm
This event is part of Outsider Artist Collective residency in The Zebrario at Nottingham Contemporary.
After a very successful first event at Green’s Windmill exploring the full moon using telescopes and many other activities, Outsider Artist Collective invite you to their first follow up event at Nottingham Contemporary. Coinciding with the March full moon, this event celebrates the making of images and stories created in conjunction with Greens Windmill and St Ann’s Community Orchard.
Join us for a talk at 6.15pm titled 'Gardening Under One Sky' with Sandra Cunningham, an introduction to lunar gardening, the three systems of permaculture, biodynamics and the lunar growing calendar. The talk will be followed by discussions, opportunities to collaborate with Outsider Artist, seeing some of the work produced to date and (fingers crossed) looking through the telescopes at the moon and stars.
Outsider Artist Collective look forward to sharing time looking at the night sky with you.
Free. All welcome. No need to book, just drop in.
This event will take place in The Zebrario (adjoins Gallery 1)
Outsider Artist Collective are a group of artists who collaborate with different communities to explore ideas about living together ‘under one sky’. During their residency, they will explore ideas using the moon as a platform to hold group gatherings prior to equinox/solstice dates. What is the moon's significance in our daily life as an embodiment of the things we’ve lost sight of? How can we reconnect? What does a 21st century myth/ritual/connection/story look like? Find out while sitting around a fire listening to cultural rhythms, stories, myths and exploring the relationships and the effects of the moon on nature and our lives.
Sandra Cunningham is an educator and counsellor with an in-depth knowledge of astrology, tarot reading and palmistry. Her life long learning and experience will inform her talk: an introduction to lunar gardening, the three systems of permaculture, biodynamics and the lunar growing calendar.
