A culmination of a two year project, four artists in residence and countless members of the community of Swaledale and beyond. See the installations created by artists and community alike in this touring exhibition by Chrysalis Arts.

Fabric of Place is a Slow Art, artist in residency programme based in Reeth and the surrounding area of Swaledale. The project aims to nurture specific audiences including children, young people and isolated older people to engage with art, sustainability and place making to help us develop new ideas and approaches for the future.

Artists involved include Joanne Kaar, Serena Partridge, Ed Kluz and Graham Taylor. The project is supported by North Yorkshire County Council’s Stronger Communities Programme and the Yorkshire Dales National Park’s Sustainable Development Fund.

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.
