Alec has been investigating the place names of the east coast from the north of Scotland down to England helped by the expertise of Leonie Dunlop. He recorded his findings and insights that inspired a series of poems which were published this year by Hull City of Culture and North Light Arts.
Hannah Imlach has worked with North Light Arts on three occasions now culminating with the sculpture Doon Cradle. Her work investigates the changes in the local landscape and responds to global issues and concerns for sustainability.
