Artful Ways is a brand new Arts Council funded project bringing people together across Cumbria in an exciting celebration of creativity and connection as the county emerges from lockdown. The exhibition at Tullie House will showcase artwork created during a month of activity across the county.
From June 25 to July 25, Artful Ways invites people from all across the cultural sector to meet up outside, to walk between studios, venues and other cultural landmarks, and to make a piece of work in response. Their tracks, recorded with an easy-to-use app, will be added to a new map celebrating Cumbria's creative richness. Pieces of creative work made by participants - from professional artists and budding creatives - will be shared on the website and a selection will be chosen to feature in the touring exhibition.
