Heritage Lottery Funded South Dorset Ridgeway Updates 

Artsreach

LISTEN TO THE LANDSCAPE  Sat 7th March 3:30pm – 7:30pm.
Walk with sound artist Richard Povall and the Dorset Wildlife Trust to record the sounds of the landscape on Eggardon Hill at dusk

There are many ways to explore the world around us, and more often than not the local landscape is captured and recreated visually. Far less frequently however do we listen to the landscape, which is full of a variety of rich sounds that have their own tales to tell. Join sound artist Richard Povall and a Dorset Wildlife Ranger on a walk around the ancient hillfort at Eggardon Hill near Bridport, to look, listen and record the sounds of the landscape as day moves in to night. What can be heard? What do these sounds tell us about the land? What stories do these sounds evoke?

In this special collaboration between Artsreach, The South Dorset Ridgeway Partnership and Dorset Wildlife Trust, participants will use sound recorders to listen up close and capture a series of recordings during the walk, which Richard will then use to create a radio programme based on the events of the day.

Suitable for all ages, this workshop won’t involve strenuous walking and families are very welcome, as are dogs on a leash. The only real skill required is the ability to be still and listen.

This special event will start and finish at The Kingcombe Centre, Toller Porcorum, and includes an introductory talk and supper. Places limited. Booking is essential

Sat 7 March, 3:30pm-7:30pm. The Kingcombe Centre, Toller Porcorum.
Tel: 01300 320684. Places £30, £20 u18s, to include supper

Gigapan workshops

Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty would like to invite you to a free workshop to learn about and try the latest GigaPan photographic technology.  The workshops are being offered as part of the Drawing Inspiration project which has focussed on historic landscape artworks and the concept of landscape change.  The final phase of this project, looks at landscape artworks from the past and ways in which the Gigapan could be used to document and monitor landscape in the future.  The workshop is aimed at competent photographers who are interested in helping us monitor landscape change.

 

What is GigaPan?  GigaPan was developed in in the US and is a photographic system combining hardware, software, and services to create and share high-resolution, interactive gigapixel panoramic images. The combination of high-definition images and panoramas with sharing, tagging and zooming capabilities offers great possibilities for more interactive and detailed documentation of our local landscape. For examples of the amazing work produced through the system visit www.gigapan.com

With the support of the Fine Family Foundation, we are looking at ways to make best use of GigaPan technology to record landscape character and landscape change in Dorset  This workshop offers you the opportunity to find out more about this amazing technology and give it a go. Following the workshop, we have 3 GigaPan units to loan out to camera clubs who are interested in working with us on this project.

If you are interested in getting involved, please sign up to this special FREE workshop on Monday 16 March at the Learning Centre, Durlston Park, near Swanage. At this workshop you will:

  • Hear what GigaPan technology is and see examples of what GigaPan can produce, from local experts
  • See some great landscape-inspired artworks from the past that could be used as a starting point
  • Try out GigaPan units on local landscape
  • Learn about how to store and edit GigaPan images

The workshop will run from 10.30am – 3.00pm.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided as part of the day.

In return for attending the workshop, you will have free access to a GigaPan unit and the challenge to use it to record landscapes and landscape change.

Due to the hands-on nature of the workshop and the limited number of GigaPan units available, this workshop is limited to 15 … so book early!

Public perceptions of climate change in Britain

A team from Cardiff University have produced an assessment of public opinion on climate change, including a study of people who had been recently flooded. As one might expect, the study showed that people who had experienced flooding were more likely to view climate change as a major, near-term threat.

Reviews

Forcey’s Tower

From Farmer Will Best on Forcey’s Tower – the commission made by Guy Martin for Cape Farewell in Sydlington St Nicolas, West Dorset:

‘It was great. We were 12, ages from 0 to 67. All walked there except me (and the baby). At midnight, we all, starting with the youngest, went from the old year to the new through the tower ringing the bell as we went. We had mulled wine in 2014 and sloe gin in 2015, and let off a few sparklers. The clouds were blowing along the SW wind and the moon was well visible behind them so there was enough light to see; and just before midnight the clouds cleared briefly to the east and firstly Mercury, and then suddenly Orion, Sirius and the twins appeared ( and no doubt a few others I didn’t recognise) and then disappeared again. Perfect really. We soon dispersed as the wind began to feel a bit chilly, but everyone was very happy about it all.’

  

Landance

The film of Landance in 2014 at the Valley of Stones is now on line. If you were unable to get a ticket, here is a flavour of the performances:
