The Earth Echoes journey...
Earth Echoes, created for the opening ceremony of the 7th International Conference on UNESCO Global Geoparks, was the next stop on this exciting journey.
In line with the conference theme of Health & Wellbeing through Creative and Active Engagement the making of Earth Echoes is testament to the role that the arts can play in transforming people and communities.
Professional musicians and arts organisations, a local authority, a team of professional artists across a range of disciplines, a group of young composers, the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark and most significantly a large cross generational group of people aged 8 to 80 from the local community.
The Rock Connects Us….
Like geology, in may ways for the participants and performers, the creative process, the process over time of making Earth Echoes, was as important, if not more important, than the thing that was being made. Within that journey, people changed. Confidence grew, layer by layer over time. Friendships were made, minds broadened, new knowledge gained. Human beings who once were strangers across the generations talked, played and shared together. Lives have been changed, for some in the tiniest way, for some in enormous as yet unfathomable ways. These things are significant.
And now, The Rocks Connects Us again…..
We offer you the unique collection of Earth Echoes materials, above, as an incredible legacy from the conference, in a spirit of sharing and with the certain knowledge that at this time in the world there is more that connects us together than the numerous thing which too easily seem to separate us. We hope you enjoy our offer.
