Giants in the Forest

As part of the Year of Natural Scotland 2013, Giants in the Forest combined art, technology and the natural environment to inspire creativity, whilst encouraging more people to visit forests and enjoy art in non-traditional settings.

Vision Mechanics constructed, seeded and suspended giant heads in 11 sites across Scotland and in April 2013 Findhorn Bay Arts brought the Giants to Sanquhar Woods in Forres.

A programme of outdoor activities, curated and facilitated by Elemental Community Arts took place in Sanquhar Woods, hosted by Forres Community Woodland Trust.

If you should be walking through Sanquhar Woods, look out – the Giants in the Forest can still be found.
