The Shieling Project

The Shieling Project is a social enterprise and community-based off-grid education centre in Glenstrathfarrar, near Beauly in the Scottish Highlands. We use the story of the ‘shieling’ (àirigh in Scottish Gaelic) as a route into place-based learning about crofting, horticulture, green building, food growing and cooking, renewable technologies, traditional skills, crafts and culture. The idea is simple: to explore the landscape’s past to help build a more sustainable, resilient future.

The Birch Collective

We are a new collective formed in response to the current context. We developed ‘Nature Connection Tools for Resilience;’ an online course for 18-25 yr olds which will run alongside Rites of Passage camps. Both explore ways young people can deepen their relationship to the natural world, themselves and each other and so begin a journey of inspired and engaged adulthood.

Shieldfield Art Works

Shieldfield Art Works (or ‘SAW’) is an arts organisation based in Shieldfield, Newcastle upon Tyne. SAW is an artist-led organisation committed to creativity, theological critique and community engagement. Through making art, growing, cooking, discussion and learning, we seek positive change for the welfare of the city, in order to seek out ways of supporting and enabling social transformation.

Awareness with Horses

Our mission is to help create, and help others create a more peaceful, sustainable world through equine assisted experiential learning and therapeutic interventions that support learning and growth, self-awareness, mental health well-being, resilience, co-creative leadership skills and nature connection, for both adults and young people, we work one to one and in small groups.

Jo Chalkblack

As a social-practice artist, Jo Chalkblack initiates processes of authentic connection in every day places (community projects, city sanctuaries, schools) and brings people into places of authentic connection (woodland, riverside, cemetery). Impermanent, embodied becomings; blending organic with digital; form with light and dark, chalk, tree, charcoal; marking death-love and love-loss; evoking innate enactments of transition at crossroads of change.
