Blaze in the Wild are a group of local 13 – 25 year olds who are passionate about protecting out local natural environment.
Over the past six months they’ve been exploring how the arts can be used to explore, celebrate and protect our unique landscapes. They’ve met professionals from local environmental organisations, worked with artists and consulted with the public.
In a workshop with poet Roy McFarlane the group wrote poetry inspired by their explorations and their concerns about climate change. The poems inspired this window installation created with artist Kate Eggleston-Wirtz. All of the materials used in the installation have been found, borrowed or reused.
The group would like to thank all of the community partners who have supported and been involved in their project.
Blaze Arts is a youth led arts organisation based in Burnley. They support young people to develop confidence, creativity and transferable skills through youth led creative projects.
This project was delivered by Blaze Arts, and funded by Super Slow Way.
