ABOUT THE PROJECT
Soils and soil science have an image problem and this initiative aims to raise the level of public awareness of soils and their importance to society and humankind.
Let’s Get Dirty is an artist in residence program and the first program of the Art in Soil initiative. Let’s Get Dirty specifically aims to claim back the word ‘dirt’ as positively associated with our soils.
Let’s Get Dirty will be a six month program launching June 7 2017. Artists will have an opportunity to work in conjunction with soil scientists in developing an artistic work inspired by soil. Over the course of this program the development of the work will be shared through various media so that the general public are also part of this journey.
The Art in Soil initiative is run by a working group made up of Artists and Soil Scientists. For more information on the working group please visit the working group profile link.
