    Funded on Sunday, 31st July 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

    We are a ‘not-for-profit' artist-led group based in Charnwood, Leicestershire, and we are seeking to raise funding to support our ‘Into the Outwoods Sculpture Trail 2022’ project.

    This year’s theme, ‘Harmony and Healing for Planet and People’, aims to promote personal and community well-being and increase awareness of environmental sustainability and draw links between the two.

    We have spent many hours developing the project and submitting funding applications to Arts Council England and Charnwood Borough Council but unfortunately have not been successful.

    We have, however, secured a Leicestershire County Council ‘Shire Grant’ of £5000 to run a series of creative workshops with Mapelwell Hall School, Glebe House and Cobden Primary School to co-created three or four woodland installations for the trail.

    We now need your help to raise some funds to offer modest commissions to a number of local artists to produce and install work to add to the trail and create a more substantial experience for the people of Charnwood and Leicestershire.

    Any donation, however small, will be very helpful and appreciated. All funds raised will be used to build a bigger and better Outwoods trail.

    Many of you will have visited and will remember our previous Outwoods projects including the 1 ¼ mile Sculpture Trail staged for six weeks in 2019. We delivered community workshops held in the woodland for over 1000 participants and the whole event attracted around 20 thousand visitors to the Outwoods. It is 3 years since that sculpture trail, and people are still talking about it, and asking when the next one will be. The memories made in the woods for families have had lasting benefits, enabling people of all ages to appreciate the natural world and value our natural heritage. We hope to create an inspiring sculpture trail, free and open to all, including willow work installations by Nita Rao and ‘ceramic wildlife’ by Lisa Denham. We also hope to see the return of the ceramic ‘tree people’ to the trees along the trail route!
