The Valley

The Valley is a new strand of Grizedale Arts activity, where we collaborate with the rich resources of the Coniston (or Crake, as it’s known locally) Valley.

During our Anniversary Weekend we invite you to open farms, village hall exhibitions, craft workshops, open gardens, rural picnics and all sorts of cultural and historic open-ness - from Antony Gormley to artificial insemination.  We also invite you to celebrate the launch of our new residency programme in rural Japan, which you can learn more about at our Water Yeat Village Hall exhibition.

The Valley programme is part of an international exchange network that connects diverse rural communities across the globe, developing creative problem-solving and collaborative working.

Those with a celebratory Valley badge - available from the Grizedale Arts office at the Coniston Institute on Saturday 29 June and from Lawson Park on Sunday 30 June - can claim small discounts in several Valley venues (see the programme for further details).
