At the heart of Gilpin 2020 is the project with the same name by the Wye Valley Learning Network of primary schools.
In the spring and summer terms of 2020 children from a group of schools will be engaging in a creative project to bring the original Wye Tour to life.
We’ll be using drone footage, specially commissioned and captured by Dronemaster Productions to take you on a virtual tour of the Wye from Ross to Monmouth (day one of Gilpin’s Tour).
The finished films will be made available in a variety of ways and at several showcase events in summer 2020. Keep an eye on this site.
We’ll also be working with local artists and communities on related creative media with a tangible and lasting physical piece of art at key locations along the tour.
You’ll find more detail in the following document:
