Wyldwood Arts are proud to be working with the Forestry Commission on their Foresters Forest programme. Between 2018-2022, we'll be producing 10 projects, working closely with a variety of forest communities to create celebrations about their history and people. 

The project aims to preserve local knowledge and history, fortifying community networks. Look out for public performances, events, photography, film, local exhibitions, podcasts and blogs that help us to preserve and enhance local heritage. 

The 10 community celebrations will culminate in one big celebration event in 2022. 

We're currently working with various local partnerships and groups to develop the next performance project with our artists Chez Dunford and Adam Blake.
