Future Landscapes Symposium


 

To accompany the Sheep exhibition in spring 2019, the cross-disciplinary symposium 'Future Landscapes' explored dialogues around the future of our rural farming landscape. Speakers from farming communities, curators, policy makers, scientists, geographers and artists were invited to take part in a symposium that took them from town into the uplands of mid-Wales and back.

A copy of the report produced as a result of the symposium can be download HERE
