About Boundary Way Project
Boundary Way Project has evolved through a series of arts and heritage projects that have been inspired by people, nature and place at Boundary Way Allotments and Community Garden since 2015.
During this time we have explored the natural heritage of the allotments and community garden and worked with a community of growers, artists, historians and scientists. We have worked in partnership with local schools and community groups and forged links regionally and nationally.
Projects have included researching the history of our site, mapping native plants, artist residencies, creative workshops inspired by our setting and an exploration of fungi. We have developed a wide range of resources for schools, community groups and anyone interested in finding out more about our setting, allotments, creativity and nature connection. We are involved in research and development work in all of these areas. We have created a new website for Boundary Way and use a regular blog and Social Media platforms to connect with others and share our work.
This work has been supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, Creative Black Country and the National Lottery Community Fund.
During lockdown the project has secured funding through National Lottery Heritage Emergency funding and two awards from the Culture Recovery Fund. Through this Boundary Way Project was able to continue research and development and try new ways of connecting with people whilst social distancing. We are currently running an online programme which includes writing workshops, health and wellbeing sessions and creative workshops.
Proud to be working with our current funders:
The Boundary Way Project are currently working online to help people locally, regionally and further afield to connect with nature and each other during these challenging times. We have delivered wide ranging creative and educational sessions online, providing life enriching learning whilst normal social activities and groups have been absent.
With the support of the Cultural Recovery Fund for Heritage, we will be continuing our programme and supporting individual and environmental wellbeing through nature connection and creativity.
Films by Boundary Way Project
Boundary Way Project began working virtually in 2020 to support wellbeing through sharing online video content during the pandemic. Since then, over twenty films have been created themed around nature connection and creativity.
We pledge to help people connect with and value nature and to support its conservation.
Associate Artists, Community & Creatives
Over the years, the Boundary Way Project have been delighted to work with artists, educators, scientists and creatives, who have explored and taken inspiration from the allotments and garden. They have created responses in a range of media, taught workshops and collaborated with plot holders and the local community.
