Through an installation and exhibition, with poetry reading, live music and local exchange events, our village of Garrigill celebrates and explores how we can live with climate change by learning about local wilderness.

Jules Cadie, visual artist, and Josephine Dickinson, poet, lead other Earth Companions from their North Pennines village of Garrigill as they explore what climate change means to the ecology of their local community; how they can mitigate its effects, how they are adapting, and how connected they feel to the natural world. They start by leading a walk around local wild places, where they share their feelings and ideas, expressed through different media, which provides material for an exhibition and installation of three 'totems' in their village. This space is then animated through three separate events when visitors will be encouraged to bring offerings to the totems and to share bread - live acoustic music, a poetry reading and an exchange event, which is documented on video with commentary from local people.
