About : These 6 eBooks comprise a downloadable version of an artists’ bookwork created by Proboscis for Green Heart Partnership with Hertfordshire County Council. Proboscis were commissioned to explore peoples’ ideas about community in four very different geographic communities to get a broad range of opinions across the county: in WatfordStevenage, rural North Hertfordshire and the commuter areas of Broxbourne. The project focused on finding out the reasons why people get on with each other and feel part of the community and, developing a better understanding of our communities in order to help Hertfordshire County Council and its partners to plan their work supporting communities over the next few years.

Alice Angus, co-director of Proboscis, is an artist inspired by rethinking concepts and perceptions of landscape and human relationships to the land. Over the last six years she has been creating a body of art work exploring concepts proximity and remoteness, technology and presence, against the lived experience and local knowledge of a place. In 2003, Alice was the only non-Canadian to participate in the first Artist in the Park residency in Ivvavik National Park in the Northern Yukon, organised by Parks Canada.

Orlagh Woods is an artist whose work explores how diverse people and communities engage with each other and their environment – how they connect, communicate and are perceived both through digital and non-digital means. She has been working with Proboscis since 2004 and also curates a professional development programme for British Asian theatre company, Tamasha, in London.
