Wilderness Commons is an exhibition exploring alternative ecologies, rituals and the evolving relationship between humanity and nature, envisioning flora, fauna, and landscapes as living beings.

Ritual and nature have been deeply interconnected throughout history, reflecting the profound relationship between human societies and their natural environments. From Seasonal celebrations to harvest festivals, animism and healing practices in various cultures, rituals were integral to expressing reverence, gratitude, and a sense of interconnectedness with the natural world.

This exhibition explores what a modern ritual can look like and what alternative ways of engagement there are. This shift in our approach holds the potential to deepen our connection with the environment, fostering a symbiotic relationship that transcends conventional notions of nature as a passive backdrop.

Through a diverse array of artistic expressions and public programming, this exhibition aims to inspire and nurture ideas about exchanges and dialogues between humanity and the environment.

We are looking for work that explores:

How might we create a new ritual for our changing world?

How can we feel more connected with the rest of the living world?

How can a deeper understanding of the living world be encouraged through rituals, dialogues or other practices?

All media is accepted, and anyone can apply.

It is free to apply; however, if selected, we ask Artists for a £22 contribution (like crowdfunding) and to volunteer some time to invigilate the exhibition. 

✨ Deadline: 12th of April 2024, to apply please send your proposal to
