Join Ruth Levene and Ian Nesbitt for a morning of exploration and discussion about ‘changing and precarious landscape’. Following their five-day walk around the metropolitan boundary of Preston last year to observe and gather information of the landscape around the city’s edges, Ruth and Ian are looking to broaden and deepen their understanding by seeking the experiences and knowledge of others.

The event will take participants on a coach to locations on the western bounds of Preston and include readings, discussion points and conversation. Lunch will be supplied followed by a discussion chaired by Landscape Archaeologist, Bob Johnston (University of Sheffield). Collection will be at 9.30am and drop off by 3.00pm at Preston Station. The event is free. Book your place.

Precarious Landscape is part of The Connected City project, a series of artworks and events exploring areas that will be affected by the City Deal – a scheme that aims to deliver new jobs and housing in Preston.
