Lakes Alive

Lakes Alive offers a fantastic free programme of world class contemporary art, spectacular happenings and participation, brought to you by artists from home and abroad. Step back in time and watch highlights  here.

“A boat rowing gently through the tides of the world around us, a lone boatman traverses a vast ocean of memories and past hopes, accompanied by his own personal storm. Combines melancholic humour, in a moving, atmospheric row-about installation.”

Celebrating World Heritage Site status

The Lake District has long been a source of artistic inspiration and this was one of the three key reasons why it was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in July 2017.

The identity, inspiration and desire to look after this spectacular landscape combines to create an evolving masterpiece – the perfect backdrop against showcase our contemporary digital arts festival.

Lakes Alive will celebrate the Lake District’s World Heritage Site status, firmly establishing the area as a modern, cultural destination, deserving the ultimate accolade and international recognition of World Heritage status.
