Living Landscapes

Working creatively with communities to explore, reveal and celebrate stories of the Darent Valley landscape

Meet: Living Landscapes

This journey begins with Gnomus, the keeper of landscapes and caretaker of the Darent Valley. The story goes that Gnomus used to walk with the artist Samuel Palmer to help him choose which landscapes to paint.

Beginning in Winter 2020, communities and schools in the Darent Valley will be invited to explore, reveal and celebrate stories of the valley landscape from Dartford to Sevenoaks.

Puppets with Guts will present workshops where participants will create a series of animated living landscape scenes based loosely on Samuel Palmer’s paintings and explore their own connections to the local landscape.
