Jeskyns is the name of a new landscape being created by the Forestry Commission on the edge of Cobham village, Kent.
Red Earth worked with students from Meopham and Thamesview secondary schools to create a performance event, BOUNDARY celebrating the new landscape and the beginning of a new relationship between local communities and the wildlife that will be encouraged to return to the land. The event unveiled a new sculpture installation by Walter Bailey.
A ceremonial procession created and performed by artists and students across open land involved music, performance and the burying of two time capsules containing artifacts symbolic of students’ lives in the 21st century.
BOUNDARY marked and amplified the future promise Jeskyns holds for local people, instilling in those involved a sense of ownership, responsibility and respect for their landscape.
