You are invited to attend the launch of an exciting new project to explore Ruskin Land, the area of the Wyre Forest cared for by Ruskin’s Guild of St George and managed by the Wyre Community Land Trust. The two-year programme begins this summer and concludes in 2019 when the bicentenary of John Ruskin’s birth will be celebrated.
The project aims to explore the story of what happened at Ruskin Land, how Ruskin’s ideas have been incorporated into the modern forest, and what can be done to reinterpret his vision today in meaningful, creative and productive ways.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Guild of St George, the project seeks to deepen the links between the local community and the forest through a wide range of events and activities starting with the ABC of Ruskin Land exhibition. This exhibition runs throughout July and August in the Museum sawyard.
We hope that you will be able to join us for tea and biscuits in the Museum sawyard, to hear more about the project and to find out ways in which you could be involved.
Please use the Jubilee Gardens entrance to the museum to access the launch event.
Please confirm your attendance by RSVP to Wyre Community Land Trust firstname.lastname@example.org or 01299 488083 by 20th July 2017.
