Monday 17 May – Sunday 24 October 2021
Featuring six unique flag artworks, visitors will be able to enjoy the great outdoors and explore new areas now open to the public, taking in moments of mindfulness, set against the stunning backdrop of Harewood and beyond.
After what has been an incredibly difficult time for us all, this year at Harewood we are focussing on the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing. At a time when the country moves forward and begins to rebuild and heal from the Covid pandemic, many will still be facing anxieties about returning to busy spaces in the outside world. Harewood became a place of escape for many over the last year, and we hope this will continue into 2021. Together We Are creates a series of pausing points along our newly created circular walk, prompting moments of reflection and positivity, whilst marking the breathtaking views across the Harewood landscape.
Graphic artist Anthony Burrill combines a knack for simplicity that packs a punch with analogue craft skills and powerful, positive messages. Burrill frequently collaborates with other forward-thinking creatives across disciplines spanning music, architecture, curation, education and more; pushing his traditional discipline of choice, letterpress printing, into bold new territories.
Words, gentle humour, no-nonsense communication and people are at the heart of Burrill’s practice and his distinctive brand of upbeat messaging: its core DNA is one created through a longstanding passion for creativity without limitations, the power of simplicity and an innate curiosity about the world and people in it.
Burrill was born in Littleborough, Lancashire. After studying Graphic Design at Leeds Polytechnic he completed an MA in Graphic Design at the Royal College of Art, London. He now lives and works on the Isle of Oxney, Kent.
