A community event honouring our outstanding landscape through the arts
Saturday 17 September, 6.00pm
Harvest is a community gathering at Box Hill. You are invited to a mass picnic at Donkey Green while multiple choirs sing out across the hills and poets recite their specially created works all around a stunning art installation.
This year the focus is connections. Connections between each other and between us and nature. The art installation ‘Seeds of Hope’ by Diana Burch represents just that. This sustainable artwork is made purely from sticks and recycled yarns. Hundreds of local people, or all ages, backgrounds and abilities have contributed to this piece over the past few months. The mindful act of binding with the wool encouraged contemplation, as well as an openness with others doing the activity.
“In a world that often feels challenging, Seeds of Hope demonstrates a renewal of optimism by connecting us with each other and the natural world.”– Diana Burch, Artist
You can have a go yourself and bring your hoop along to add to the installation. Diana has created this 1 minute video to explain the simple technique.
Choir Leader Anna Tabbush has written a special ‘Seeds of Hope’ round for all to join in.
