About this event

Join Helen Thomas in conversation with Prof Mike Collier and Dr Judith Tucker as they discuss Helen’s project 'Dandelions and Double Yellows'.

Dandelions and Double Yellows is an art, nature and noticing project. This 'walk and talk' event will take place in person at Wakefield Cathedral to coincide with Helen's exhibition of site responsive paintings, which are informed by observation and memory of urban wildflowers.

The Cathedral will be open before the event for attendees to view the exhibition.

Dandelions and Double Yellows

Dandelions and Double Yellows is supported using public funding by Arts Council England. The project and exhibition has been part funded as part of Festival of the Earth, led by Wakefield Council.

Mike Collier

Prof Mike Collier is a lecturer, writer, curator and artist. He co-founded WALK (Walking, Art, Landscape and Knowledge), a research centre at the University of Sunderland which looks at the way we creatively engage with the world as we walk through it. Much of his work is place-specific, exploring our relationship to a ‘more than human’ world, paying close attention to the environment through which he walks. His current work focuses around an exploration of the dawn chorus, working with composer/musician Dr Bennett Hogg and natural history sound recordist Geoff Sample of Wildsong.
