There has been a lot in the press about how cut off we screen-obsessed humans have become from nature and how damaging this alienation is, both for us and for the planet. But we must not despair. There are masses of ways of reconnecting to the nature around us (especially this summer when our air is cleaner and travel is curtailed), and art can be a great ally in this process.
Please leave us your details if you’d like to stay in touch as we develop the project. There will be more information, fun pattern-making activities and guidelines for submissions added soon. We will be using the tag #bloomingup to share our work and progress on Instagram. You can also contact us by email using Blooming Up as the subject.
