The Year – Exhibition Opening

Loading Events

From Spring 2018 to Spring 2019, Signals ran over 50 creative workshops for young people at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve. ‘The Year’ was 12 months of workshops where we explored various stories from the reserve, including the singing Nightingales of Spring, the basking Adders of Summer, the boisterous badgers of Autumn and the visiting wading birds of Winter.

‘The Year’ encouraged young people to embrace and explore the natural heritage of the reserve through creativity. This exhibition showcases some of our favourite stories from the reserve as well as the incredible work made by the young people involved, including: photography, filmmaking, wild writing and even an arcade machine of wildlife themed video games! We’ll also have free animation and calligraphy activities at the launch too.

This exhibition is free and opens on Saturday 30th March at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve Visitors Centre, and continues until to Monday 22nd April.
