Understory

As part of our arts project, we are asking for your contributions about environmental issues in the North East and Cumbria.

What issues are important to you and your community? This could be road verges, farmland, parks, building developments, allotments, community nature reserves. Have things changed? Has this been for better or worse? What has been the impact for you and your family, your community and your environment? Who has benefitted?

Please get in touch and let us know about any issues or concerns about the environment where you live, or about conservation projects you know of, or would like to see.

You can write to us here – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6L6GFFW

We would also like video and audio contributions. If you would also like to send a video or audio recording of yourself and where you are talking about, please contact Kate at https://katehalsall.co.uk/contact-2/ to receive details.


If you are under 18 and would like to contribute, please include the email of your parent/guardian.

Thank you!

Understory will be a live music and film performance, with a large community contribution, which we’d like you to be part of. The project started in March 2021, as part of Theatre by the Lake’s Open Space scratch night.

Understory - is a new work for dual-video installation created with North East based film-maker Matt Jamie, with new music for ensemble and found sound written by Kate Halsall.
