Creative Freedom exhibition

In 2023 we celebrated 40 years of caring for wild places and invited artists from all disciplines to submit artwork that showed us what 'freedom for wild places' meant to them. Around 400 people responded - with the best entries included in an exhibition in Pitlochry's Wild Space visitor centre this spring.

Alongside the judges top selections, they also chose a selection of runner up entries, some of which couldn't quite fit into the physical exhibition. You can view all the judges top choices on our online gallery.
