Through Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice local people are invited to take part in a series of short pondering courses during June, July and August 2024. Local artists Helen Garbett and Bill Laybourne will bring together small groups to spend time away from the everyday, slow down, pay attention to and notice the natural world amongst our busy urban landscape.

Creative activities include focused conversation, deep listening, guided visualisation, drawing, photography and film making. We will show our collective work at the end of the project in October 2024.

The benefits of attending a course include an increased appreciation of water and ponds within the natural world locally, shared learning, developed artists skills, engagement with natural heritage and an improved sense of wellbeing.

Courses are free and based at Riverside House, Canal Street, Stourbridge.

Course 1 dates:
Wednesday 12th June, Wednesday 19th June, Wednesday 26th June and Wednesday 10th July
Times: 10.30am to 12.30pm
Open for bookings, reserve your free spot on Eventbrite.

These courses are among many open invitations being extended through Getting Into Hot Water, an art-based inquiry into water and climate change locally led by Workshop 24. As part of the Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice, in collaboration with Dudley CVS and others, Workshop 24 invite you to join them in a series of conversations, Water Walks, Field Trips, Water Courses and ponderings. Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.
