The public are invited to come and meet haptic/tacit, made up of Jane Cairns, Grant Aston and Kim Norton, on Sunday, May 15, 2pm onwards.
This is the first of a series of Norfolk and Norwich Festival events called the Artistic Forager.
The artists will tour the exhibition, talk about their work and then take us all on a walk to discuss how they relate their practice to opportunities in the environment.
The following week on Sunday, May 22, people are encouraged come and join film-maker and writer John Rogers for the second Norfolk and Norwich Festival event called Edgelands, Exploring Urban Landscapes.

John is new to Lynn but his experienced explorer's instinct will take participants on a journey.
Even if you know the town well, we will all have fun seeing it afresh with him and talking about its many delights.
The artists kin'd and kin'd's previous eco-poetry workshop at GroundWork, immediately showed that their approach is unconventional, friendly and relaxed.
