Hosting an installation of The Same Hillside

The Same Hillside transports audiences to remote and hard-to-access locations and lets them hear expert testimony from those who live and work there.

It has proved to be of interest to art-seekers, children, environmental conservation and climate change activists, and decision makers at corporate, local and national levels.

Each installation is accompanied by a public talk and discussion, led by both artist and scientist, on issues raised by the work.
