Unearthing Dartmoor

Saturday, 1 July 2023 at 10:00 - 16:00

Until 29 September 2023

This exhibition represents a large and varied body of poetry, artwork, prints and photographs chronicling and reflecting different dimensions of Dartmoor. It represents two years of collaborative work between poets from the local group, Moor Poets, working together with members of the local artist’s group, Markmakers, whilst visiting many different sites on Dartmoor.
This treasure-trove of poetry and art will be on public exhibition between Saturday 1st July - 29th September 2023 at the Dartmoor National Park Authority’s Visitor Centre at Princetown. Entrance is free and the exhibition offers enjoyment and inspiration to Dartmoor’s locals and many visitors alike. The Launch event for this exhibition will be held on Saturday 1st July at 3pm and all are warmly welcome to attend.
A more permanent record of our project is in the form of a beautiful high quality colour illustrated anthology of the project’s poetry and artwork called Unearthing Dartmoor. The book will be on sale for £15 at the exhibition We are very grateful to the Duchy of Cornwall and Moor Poets for supporting the project with grants, and for the DNPA’s support by providing the exhibition venue at the National Park Visitor Centre in Princetown.
