Thanks to the support of our partners – we are able to commission another fantastic selection of UK artists to make work that is deeply rooted in the location’s heritage. Hengistbury Head is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM) where the effects of climate change are a real concern. More will be revealed. Watch this space…”
