Skylines archive

Skylines was an exhibition, festival and academic forum. An innovative project with an international focus, it brought together work in the interdisciplinary fields of creative writing and ecology. Mixed media work including site-specific installations, paintings, text and video were displayed in and around the gallery throughout the duration of the project, while the launch day on June 7th, and festival day on June 20th, saw a wide range of diverse artists coming together in performance, enquiry and celebration. A focus on new media and writing with digital technologies helped re-position the subject of Ecopoetics within a contemporary landscape (with multimedia screening co-ordinated by Mediaalive http://www.mediaalive.co.uk/). Workshops engaged young people and charities in the local community.
