West Cumbria Rivers Trust’s Youth Panel will be showcasing some new art pieces to form an exciting pop-up exhibition at Walkmill Community Woodland, near Whitehaven. The youngsters worked with local artist and geographer Anne Waggot Knott on the project.
They created a range of artworks inspired by the woodland, including photography, cynotypes and lino printing, which will be on display around the site for the pop-up exhibition from 12pm until 2pm. Visitors will be given a map to follow a 2km wheelchair friendly loop of the site where the artworks will be visible along the route.
The Trust’s Youth Panel formed in 2022 with funding from the #CanDoFund through Cumbria Community Foundation and the Dreamscheme project through the Cumbria Youth Alliance. The panel consists of a group of 14-19 year olds who work closely with key decision makers at West Cumbria Rivers Trust, ensuring that young voices are at the heart of what the Trust does.
