New Expressions visits Compton Verney

7 July 2011

Our colleagues from New Expressions in the South West came to Compton Verney last Friday to see for themselves what the team there have been up to. It was a fascinating day taking in the What the Folk Say project and meeting Laura Ellen Bacon (‘den maker in residence’) in the grounds . There was some stimulating conversations around curatorial approaches and visitor responses to the new What the Folk Say artist interventions and a chance to discuss the behind the scenes activity that make a great project like this possible. What was particularly pleasing was the enthusiasm and engagement of a group of pupils from Edgewick Community School who were in the gallery at the same time.
