2010 – 2011
A national arts project exploring our relationships to place.
The Re-Enchantment is a national arts project that seeks to interrogate the various meanings of 'place' in the twenty-first century.
It aims to deliver an imaginative response through art, live performance, film and writing to 'that most neglected of human emotions, a sense of place' – Sir Neil Cussons, former CEO, English Heritage.
Artevents has commissioned four artists to explore the significance of our various relationships to place – whether personal or collective, cultural, ecological or spiritual. The artists have all demonstrated a significant, empathetic and enduring engagement with place as a primary element of their work.
