United by Land


This summer, renowned land artist James Brunt is coming to Knowsley to create a number of land art installations in some of the borough’s most loved parks.

James along with several other accomplished land artists will descend on the Borough in August to work with local people and communities on a number of outdoor installations at Halewood Triangle, Stadt Moers, Mill Dam and Bowring Parks.

As a warm-up to this project - United by Land - James is working with a number of Knowsley Primary school pupils in May and June to create land art within school grounds. He has also promised to create some ‘pop-up’ land art in secret locations across the borough over the summer months – meaning that anyone taking a stroll in Knowsley might just stumble across a hidden gem of creativity.
