Join us for a guided walk through an ancient and ritual Dartmoor landscape.

Dartmoor has the largest concentrations of stone rows in Britain as well as 16 stone circles, many standing stones, and burial chambers. Led by Dartmoor’s Daughter, Emma Cunis, walkers will journey together (sometimes in silence and sometimes sharing experiences) through Drizzlecombe ceremonial complex. The best preserved of Dartmoor’s prehistoric ceremonial sites, it includes stone rows, standing stones, the ‘Giant’s Basin’ cairn as well as barrows, cists, and hut circles.

The route will be approx. 3 miles long. Level: Moderate.

Participants must be comfortable walking at a good pace in open and hilly moorland. Appropriate footwear and waterproofs essential. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch to have at the end of the walk.

Transport will be provided.

Dartmoor’s Daughter Emma Cunis is an inspiring Walking Guide, Nature-Connection Facilitator, Health and Life Coach, and Author.

Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters

21 October 2021 – 27 February 2022

The award-winning Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition has been entirely conceived and curated by a team of First Australians, led by Margo Neale, Senior Indigenous Curator at the National Museum of Australia and custodial elders from the Central and Western Deserts of Australia.

The exhibition features over 300 paintings and objects by more than 100 artists shown across two venues, The Levinsky Gallery and The Box. Songlines takes visitors on an epic journey that traverses three states, three deserts and some 500,000 square kilometres, travelling from west to east: to places in the deserts of the Martu, the Ngaanyatjarra and the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) peoples. Using the power of contemporary art, performance, song, photography and multimedia, the exhibition shares ancient stories from the world’s oldest continuing culture.
