It is funded by Arts Council England with support from the Elmley Foundation and the Youth Social Action Fund through the Herefordshire Community Foundation. The artist commission project spans the rural and the urban inking artists with people and places across the West Midlands.
Definition – ‘Biomimicry is loosely defined as the mimicking of life using imitation biological systems for the purpose of solving human problems.
