On the Edge


‘On the Edge’ aims to generate a new perspective on West Cumbria, a sub-region that has been historically and culturally distinct from the Cumbria most of us are familiar with. The project aims to address questions about the value of place, and what makes a place – questions that can have a wider relevance than just the local context in which they are developed – and more particularly to contribute to and inform discussions about the present and future of West Cumbria as a place facing big changes in the coming decades.

As well as producing a range of textual and visual outputs, it aims to instigate processes and initiatives with a range of partners to further enrich the cultural understanding of this unique and often overlooked corner of the North West of England.
