With so many visual artists resident in this area there are many exhibitions and workshops to showcase and share their work and techniques. Given W&BA’s commitment to promoting the special qualities of this unique area and the links between the arts and the environment we are happy to support exhibitions that use creative vision to re-interpret the landscape and wildlife of the valleys.
Creative writing is woven through our programme through workshops led by poets and authors, and readings happening as part of our creative walks programme. In 2019, we held a Bugs & Blossoms themed poetry competition. The winning entry, chosen by our distinguished judge, poet and author Dr Jos Smith (UEA), can be found on our blog.
