Deadlines for the 2010 programme are: 10th May 2010; 10th September 2010; 10th December 2010. Given the likelihood of swift post-election funding cuts to the arts, the 10th May deadline might be the best one to aim for?

Artist Miriam Burke is offering a number of drop-in participatory workshops in drawing ancient rocks (6th & 7th April 2010, 11am – 4pm) at Newcastle Borough Museum & Art Gallery, to accompany her new exhibition which launches on Saturday 13th March 2010 at 2pm – 4pm. “Know this Place for the First Time” is a sci-art exhibition arising from Miriam’s work with the glacier scientists at Keele University. The show is inspired by the local landscape of North Staffordshire — and its intriguing geological history when under the Ice Age snow, ice and glaciers of 18,000 years ago. There is also an accompanying show, “Inspirational Landscapes”, which considers the ways in which our contemporary landscape has been an inspiration to both artists and scientists.

In Miriam Burke’s Albedo project, wax-casts of visitors’ fingertips were placed around the venue, as if they were tiny ice-flowers.
