Learn more about FIELDS here.

Fields is a six month public programme across the North, East and South of England that examines the lives, stories and experiences of British sheep, cows and farmers from 1947 to the present day.

Working with photographic, film and audio archives, academic and artist research, and interviews, Fields traces the personal and social histories of cows, sheep and farmers. It invites us to think about their lives lived together across different regions of the UK and asks us to consider how they got here and where they are headed.

Fields is part of FIELD a 4 year, Wellcome Trust funded research project (2018-2022) that seeks to inform the sustainable reduction of disease in British livestock farming.
