For the fourth in our series of artists’ talks and discussions on the theme of Greening Arts Practice, we’re delighted to welcome the award-winning artist Karen Guthrie. As well as allowing plenty of time for discussion and information exchange, we are also going to review the programme so far and invite ideas for the content of future sessions.

Karen is a cross-disciplinary artist who was raised on the West coast of Scotland and now lives on a smallholding in the rural Lake District, the headquarters of arts organisation Grizedale Arts. Karen works primarily in public and socially-engaged art and in film-making, also freelancing in a number of capacities (from warden to Head Gardener to web developer) for Grizedale Arts. Recent projects include “House of Ferment” – a pop-up installation and working kitchen commissioned by Science Museum London, and so far presented at Borough Market (London), ArtBoom Festival (Krakow, Poland) and Hauser & Wirth Somerset, where she was artist-in-residence in 2014,  producing work for ‘Soil Culture’, a UK-wide touring exhibition that celebrated the UN Year Of Soil.
