Creative Cabin offers inspiring autumn events exploring nature in East Devon

A packed programme of autumn events is promised by a new, travelling Creative Cabin in East Devon after its successful launch in Exmouth.

The Honiton-based Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) and Wild East Devon have teamed up for the innovative and mobile initiative exploring art, culture and nature.

It travelled to Exmouth over the August bank holiday and offered three days of fun-filled activities.

Now a host of projects, talks, performances and workshops have been announced for the autumn exploring our relationship with nature and the climate emergency.

The programme begins with a talk by Turner Prize winning artist Richard Long. This was a rare opportunity to hear the artist in conversation about his work and the inspiration behind THG’s current exhibition ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long ‘Being in the Moment’ (till 31 Oct)

Anna Aroussi, THG’s Creative Cabin engagement officer, said: “The aim of the Creative Cabin’s new activities is that they are fun, safe, encourage health and wellbeing, raise awareness of issues around climate change and inspire with opportunities to experience culture.

“More and more events are being confirmed as the programme gathers momentum so keep an eye on the THG website and social media for updates.”

Councillor Joe Whibley, who chairs the East Devon Arts and Culture Forum, added: “It was great to see the Creative Cabin successfully launching in Exmouth, giving local families the opportunity to explore nature creatively.

“I am looking forward to the programme this autumn and seeing a range of activities that will benefit the whole community.”
