John Muir Trust

Creative Freedom Exhibition

In 2023, we marked 40 years of being committed to wild places where nature, people and communities have the freedom to thrive. As part of our celebration we invited artists across the UK, from all disciplines, to submit artwork that showed us what 'freedom for wild places' meant to them. 

Around 400 people responded, before our selection panel of professional artists chose the best entries to be included in this exhibition with the overall favourite entry awarded an artist in residence opportunity in collaboration with the John Muir Trust

We hope you are inspired by these creative visions as much as we are.

The shortlisted pieces are separated into 7 rooms for easy viewing. click ALL ARTWORK, to go room by room. To vote for your favourite from the physical exhibition, please note down the name of the artwork and vote here
