We invite you to share a remembered encounter, interaction, or experience you have had with a ‘near dwelling’ animal in your locale: tell us about a remembered moment you have shared with a ‘near dwelling’ animal. This might be a moment of contention or one of close connection, perhaps when you felt a sense of mutual understanding. It also might be something new that you have learned from an animal ‘near dweller’. It could be something amusing, or amazing – a moment of awe.
All entries will be shared online (follow @near_dwellers), exhibited at Street Road in Summer 2024, and will also be collected in a 2024 publication.
The Near Dweller Forest: all entries will also be linked to a tree or other plant in an area at Street Road that we are re-wilding. Your contribution will be given its own companion plant or tree, and marked with a QR code that will link to your story online.
