Throughout 2024 Croome and Meadow Arts are collaborating with young people from Pershore to explore our Pages from Nature theme inspired by the landscape and plant collection at Croome.

Hortus Croomensis Croome x Pershore includes the exhibition Small Creatures of Avon Meadows, 20 cast bronzes made by young people from Pershore Riverside Centre with artist duo Juneau Projects in 2022 in response to the landscape and biodiversity of nearby Avon Meadows.

At Croome, artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood has been commissioned to co-create new artworks with young people from Pershore Riverside Centre and Pershore High School using drawings, illustration and animation to respond to our landscape here.

Meadow Arts is a dynamic contemporary visual arts charity based in the rural West Midlands. Croome’s creative programme is committed to socially engaged practice. We work with artists and communities to bring to life the stories of the past for audiences of today. This collaboration brings local young people, who have been working within Meadow Arts since 2020, into dialogue with themes of landscape and nature to engender connection and a sense of belonging.

Small Creatures of Avon Meadows will be on display as part of our Pages from Nature exhibition in Croome’s Saloon. New works by Sarah Taylor Silverwood will launch in July to coincide with our Summer of Play.
