Lydbrook School & The Coombs, Part of Wye Valley River Festival & Foresters Forest Community Celebration
As part of Foresters Forest programme and Wye Valley River Festival, our first community engagement project is with Lydbrook School and The Combs, Orders of St John Care Trust, in Coleford.
Over several weeks, Wyldwood associate artists Chez Dunford and Adam Blake will be working with Years 3 + 4 exploring their curriculum theme 'Our Forest Rocks!'. The sessions involve sharing stories with the residents from The Coombs and creating new stories which will form a new performance at the school.
Adam and Chez will be collecting stories from across the Forest through a series of community engagement workshops over the next few months which will feed into a brand new performance which will tour from Autumn 2018.
Supported with funding from Heritage Lottery Fund, Forestry Commission and Arts Council England.
