A massive thank you to all who joined us for the series of guided walks and hosted occasions as part of What can we learn about love from lichen? a project by Isabel Lewis, commissioned by Art Night and ATLAS Arts as part of #ArtNight2021.
Led by the local agents – wild forager Lucy Cooke, composer Richy Carey, and lichen expert Nick Hodgettes, the walks wove a circuitous narrative about interspecies bonds and the potential for ecological attunement, brought together at the hosted occasions at Braes Village Hall on Saturday 19th June.
With sound, song, touch and taste What can we learn about love from lichen? gave attention to sensuous forms of knowing the landscape and the society between species – through taste, smell, song, sound – and thinking with lichen.

On Thursday the 15th of July ArtNight 2021 will be hosted live on the ATLAS website.
Isabel Lewis’ 2021 Art Night project is curated by Helen Nisbet, Artistic Director of Art Night as a co-commission with ATLAS Arts, with support from Goethe-Institut. What can we learn about love from lichen? was produced in collaboration with local agents Lucy Cooke, Richy Carey, Nick Hodgetts and Producer Shona Cameron. Made with the support of Callie’s, Berlin.
