Fabric of Place

Fabric of Place is a community based, artist in residence project which Chrysalis Arts Development  has developed as part of the company’s Slow Art strand of artistic activity.

The project focuses on the distinctiveness of Reeth and the surrounding area of Swaledale. Artists will use creative processes and activities to explore different aspects of the area, its communities and their relationship with where they live, to create a series of artworks and offer a range of opportunities for residents to participate. This two year project will culminate in a touring exhibition in late 2018 and a community artwork that will ultimately be housed in Reeth.

There are four artists in residence on this project. Each artist is working within the theme ‘Outside In’ over the two year project. Their own work and work they produce with community groups will form the touring exhibition which will launch at The Dales Countryside Museum in October 2018.
