Walk Out West

Specially commissioned by the Wye Valley River Festival, Deasy Bamford has brought together a micro group of culturally representative diverse artists from Bristol to explore the Wye Valley Area and develop a creative, thoughtful response to being a person of colour and a city dweller, when out in areas, communities and environments of outstanding natural beauty.

Stretching between poetry, short film, philosophical musings, photography and documentation the Walk out West artists reflect their experience of a day in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Initially this was to be a 3 day exploration and residency but Covid-19 cut us short!  

This collective of artists are: Rob Mitchell (Free Country – A Bardic Tale), Ruth Pitter (Intrepid-ation), Jasmine Ketibuah-Foley (Earth Tales)Shagufta K. Iqbal (This Place) and Deasy Bamford (Musings on the Moon and Wye Times)
