Open Eye Gallery are working in partnership with dot-art, Mersey Forest and nine schools and community groups across the Liverpool City Region to deliver TREE STORY: A HISTORY OF LIVERPOOL THROUGH ITS TREES.
Each group will investigate a significant local tree: its history and the change which has happened around it, folklore and cultural significance, biodiversity and importance to the environment. They will work with a photographer to document the tree, and with their teachers to learn about the wider context. Pupils will spend a day out in the forest enjoying forest school activities, and will share their work at a symposium to be delivered as an in-person/hybrid event by Open Eye Gallery. The project will result in displays of participants’ work in school settings, and at LOOK Photo Biennial 2022. Participants and the general public will also be able to share their Tree Stories through a new website.
The project is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
We are looking for the following freelance roles to help us deliver the project:
- Education consultant with a heritage and/or environmental specialism
- Evaluation consultant
- Web Design
- Branding Designer (may be combined with above)
