DerwentWISE -The £2.4 million Lottery Heritage Funded project ‘DerwentWISE’, (awarded 2013) focuses on the landscape around the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the factory system began at the start of the Industrial Revolution. One of our structured working teams is developing the connections and research impact, engaging and inspiring people to broaden the knowledge and use of the Derbyshire landscape. We are researching the visual representations of the heritage, lost stories and community activities of the Lower Derwent Valley. The interdisciplinary research of photography, graphics, film and ceramics has so far resulted in an interrogation of landscape such as the subsequent clay formations for ceramics, a Light Radar project (LIDAR) and exploration of epic landscape film. This research project has encouraged long term partnerships and innovative ways of working. The result has been a greater understanding, access and appreciation of our natural environment for the people living and working in and visiting these areas.
