The Clearing is a collaborative artwork by Alex Hartley and Tom James, which sets out to build a vision of the future in the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park.

Centred around a geodesic dome on the shores of the lake which the artists have built, visitors can learn how to live in the world affected by the social and climate change that’s coming our way. So far, 14 caretakers (and one baby) have occupied the dome, whilst a series of sold-out workshops have taught people how to build fires, dig toilets and forage for food!
