Join Blaze in the Wild

3rd November 2022

Join the Blaze in The Wild group

Blaze in the Wild are a group of 13 – 25 year olds based in East Lancashire who are passionate about protecting our local, natural environment.

They’re about to start working in partnership with Super Slow Way and Burnley Words Festival, to explore how the arts can be used to celebrate and protect our unique landscape.

The group would like to invite more young people to get involved and work with local artists, writers and community organisations to creatively explore local habitats and the issues affecting them. Together you’ll plan and create a temporary exhibition or art installation in an empty shop window in Burnley town centre.

If you’re aged 13 – 25 and interested in joining them on this project, get in touch now by filling in this short form. The project will start on Monday 14th November 2022 and run through to February 2023. The group meet once a week, usually on Monday evenings but sometimes at the weekend. The project is free to take part in and travel expenses can be reimbursed.

Meet new people and make new friends

Get out in nature and discover new things about the area where you live
