AALERT receives support from the Landscape and Arts Network

“We are delighted to announce that AALERT has been awarded a grant of £2,500 by The Landscape and Arts Network (LAN) to further develop its membership and facilitate its aims to foster dialogue between all those interested in the role of artists and creative practices in shaping landscape and environmental research and debates. The grant to AALERT will go to employ Nerea Ferrando Jorge as part-time Digital Communications Assistant to communicate with new and existing members, collect information about their interests and work, and create an interactive space on our webpages to host it.

LAN was founded in 1993 by renowned environmental artist Francis Carr. Its founding aims were to bring together artists, landscape architects, architects, educationalists, and ecologists to pool expertise in tackling environmental change.  Through a programme of seminars, visits, conferences, and meetings it helped to broaden the context in which we understand art and landscape and inspired practitioners of all kinds to break professional boundaries.

Many thanks to current trustees Tam Giles, Tom La Dell and Simon Gibbs for using the final funding to support the AALERT network.
