We are taking part in The Wild Escape, a major new project uniting hundreds of museums with schools and families to find nature in museums.
Led by national art charity Art Fund and with support from Arts Council England, hundreds of museums, galleries and historic houses are coming together for the largest collaboration between UK museums.
Taking place from January to July 2023, we have invited local primary school children to find a favourite animal in our museum and create artwork imagining its journey to a natural habitat. A visit to the local Wolds End Orchard will explore the importance of biodiversity.
The Wild Escape is an opportunity to join the urgent conversation about climate crisis and biodiversity loss and look for nature positive solutions, in partnership with leading environmental charities the RSPB and WWF and cultural organisations National Trust and English Heritage.
The Wild Escape is inspired by Wild Isles, a landmark BBC series exploring the flora and fauna of the UK.
