Life in Our Hands school resources

A free exhibition for school groups with accompanying free resource pack.

Life in Our Hands is a new work by Shanthamani M and the people of the Yorkshire Dales.

Shanthamani M visited the Yorkshire Dales for the first time in 2019 as artist in residence with Settle Stories.

She toured the area visiting farmers, mechanics, gravediggers and those whose profession and contribution have shaped the landscape. Through informal yet intimate conversation, participants shared their stories as Shanthamani cast their hands.

At this bold and unique exhibition, the sculptures are presented alongside video so you can experience a moment in time in Settle’s cultural history.

Schools are welcome to discover this exhibition for free.
