Coventry Local Artists Development Fund 2022

The Druid’s Writing Desk

I am pleased to announce that I have been awarded a Bursary for Research & Development toward my creative practice by Theatre Absolute, Coventry. I am currently developing several projects related to objects in the landscape and this award will enable me to visit the standing stones at Brimham Rocks, specifically The Druid’s Writing Desk in the The Yorkshire Dales National Park and for research relating to Emily Brontë, English novelist and Poet and Author of Wuthering Heights. I will be visiting Emily Brontë’s Chair and the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth.
