We are delighted to be hosting an event in this September’s Deep Roots Festival.
Run by Arts Destination South Molton, the festival aims to share art and culture with the local community by programming various events throughout the town. On this, their final weekend of 2021, we are proud to host two guest speakers in our brand-new Hexagon Building on Sunday 26th September.
Myc Riggulsford ‘Natural Capital: Our Wildlife, Woodlands and Local Culture’
Science and environment journalist Myc Riggulsford, looks at the concept of our Natural Capital, focusing on the special contribution of North Devon. What price an oak tree? An Exmoor view? Your grandchildren’s future? How does society put a value on the natural world surrounding us?
11-11.30am – break for refreshments
Katy Lee ‘Ode to the Ash Tree Project’
Myc will talk with celebrated local innovator Katy Lee, of Courage Copse Creatives, about her community poetry-film project. The audience will be welcome to join in the conversation and will be able to buy the newly-minted book, filled with poems and images submitted by the community in honour of ash trees.
Tickets are £5 per person and must be booked in advance via their website: www.artsdestination.co.uk (There will be no admittance on the doors.)
Refreshments will be available to purchase on the day for £3 per person (tea/coffee and pastries).
We’ll see you there!
