And Everything And Nothing Has Changed.
A Five month Public Arts & Heritage Programme in the heart of the China Clay County by Queer Artist and Producer Robin Sullivan.
The programme consists of Public Field Trips, Talks, Workshops, Collaborative performances, Temporary Installations and ceramic firings to name but a few.
At its core this work is about bringing people to together to unite, share and celebrate. It’s about landscapes, and how we as communities shape them and in return are shaped by them. Taking the china clay landscapes, and its 6000 year history of occupation as a starting point to go on a journey of discovery.
Focused on the formation of 70km of land, it’s uses, communities and culture over millennia and into the future. The programme, conceived by Robin is a collaboration with Archaeologists, Museums, Arts Festivals, and Local Community groups.
The hope is to produce a work that actively engages diverse groups from Cornwall’s China Clay district in conversation about its landscape’s history and future, and with it the future of its communities and culture.
More information on the programme and how to get involved will be updated soon. in the meanwhile you can join my Mailing list below to be the first to hear!

‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’ has been made possible with generous support and funding from; Austell Project, the Coastal Communities Fund, Creative Civic Change, Arts Council England, Cornwall Heritage Trust, FEAST, Wheal Martyn Museum, Cornwall College, Cultivator Cornwall, Ecobos and Imerys.
Without their support I would still be wondering around the landscape with a sketchbook of ideas and dreams.
