Grizedale Arts

Grizedale Arts is a public organisation based on the Lake District hill farm of Lawson Park in the community of Coniston. From here it runs a wide-ranging yet holistic programme of artist residencies, socio-economic development, education, exhibitions, events, agriculture and food projects, seeking to create a new paradigm for art and the art institution. This programme, building on the legacies of John Ruskin and the Mechanics Institute movement, is based on art being socially purposeful and dedicated to making art and artists work as part of ordinary life. The organisation operates continuously with and for the local community, whilst undertaking invitation projects through a growing network of partners and people nationally and internationally.
