Floreligium

Our interest in exploring and mapping locales has led to invitations to work 'in residence' at an eclectic constellation of interesting places from shopping centres, heritage sites and botanical gardens, to health centres, hospitals, residential homes, libraries, schools and art venues. We are committed to fostering place-making as a powerful way to elicit change, illuminating ways to connect people to nature and extolling the need for biodiversity.   

 

Working closely with places and the people who inhabit them, we use art as a lens to interrogate broader issues of planetary health and malaise. Through our residencies we empower people to make positive changes at a local level by learning how this connection on a micro scale can mitigate against the effects of climate change, global events and consumption on a macro scale.

Currently in Residence

Exeter Custom House

We have been invited by Exeter Canal and Quay Trust to deliver a pilot programme of artistic activity in the Custom House, exploring the heritage building's potential as a cultural venue for local residents and wider publics.

 

With its vantage point on the quay and historic significance in the city, South West region and internationally, our programme uses artistic practice to raise awareness of the local heritage and environment.
