Wanderland was a pioneering creative partnership between The Turnpike and Lancashire Wildlife Trust. Established in Spring 2021, the partnership worked across Wigan's abundant green spaces; connecting people of all ages to the extraordinary biodiversity on their doorstep.

Artists brought alternative and surprising perspectives through walks, trails, workshops, soundscapes, ceremonies, moments of healing and celebration. Through deep-rooted action with communities, our urban environments were connected to local nature sites. 

The partnership reinforced the commitment of both organisations to developing a collective consciousness around climate change and the value of local green spaces through creative action.

Wanderland was supported by Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Carbon Landscape Project, Wigan Council and Arts Council England.
