Grizedale Arts, Lawson Park, East of Lake, Coniston, LA21 8AD – Visit Now

Not to be confused with Grizedale Forest and its sculpture trail (although they had more than a hand in the origination and creation of that one), Grizedale Arts is now a research and development agency for contemporary artists – many of international stature. A kind of artistic agitator or incubator, it brings together artists and thinkers at its site at Lawson Park Farm developing projects, skills and ideas that respond to the complexities of the Lake District. It’s no accident that it is based in Coniston,  former local resident John Ruskin’s ideas about art, society and community find a modern expression here, alongside an award wining eco-retreat and a programme for volunteers.
