Yesterday saw the press announcement for Withdrawn by Luke Jerram. The project has been commissioned by the National Trust’s Trust New Art Bristolcontemporary art programme and is being delivered in partnership with Forestry Commission England’s Forest Art Works programme as part of Bristol 2015.
It is one of six arts projects funded by the Arts Council England Exceptional Fund as part of Bristol’s year as European Green Capital, to help make sustainable living accessible and easy to understand. The Bristol 2015 arts and culture projects are being delivered by national portfolio organisation the Bristol Culture Development Partnership (BDCP), and will play a central part in helping people see sustainability in a new light.
