The Underworld

Welcome to our Underworld project page. Please scroll down to find accessible art activity sheets and information for artists taking part.

The Underworld is a new combined arts project for Shallal Studios to collaborate with other arts and community partners from across Cornwall over a one-year period. Our multisensory creative adventure explores Cornwall’s native flora and fauna through tactile visual arts and experimental sound and we'll be working with arts collective Moogie Wonderland, local schools, Kresen Kernow and lots of exciting artists.

The Underworld offers many different ways for audiences to enjoy our artwork including ebooks, exhibitions in accessible public spaces and a paper catalogue. Free exhibitions and events will take place at Kresen Kernow, Falmouth Art Gallery and Princess Pavilions in Summer 2022 and our ebook, with versions for people with sensory impairments, will be available free online. See our artwork ideas as they evolve here.

FEAST is a programme to make great art happen across Cornwall. Investment for FEAST comes from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.  The programme is managed by Creative Kernow.

Under the Water and Up to the Sky
Not everyone can visit the beach and see what it looks like under the water surface. Our short film goes between the magical world under the water and the sparkling world above. If you are joining any of our seaweed workshops you might like to watch this to get inspired.
Filmed by Gilbert Ratcliffe at Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth and edited by Lou Brett.
