Creative Cabin

Welcome to our Creative Cabin – art and nature on tour. 

Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) and Wild East Devon have launched a new travelling creative space - the Creative Cabin. This is a fun and creative space to explore art and nature in your neighbourhood. The Cabin hosts a broad range of activities, projects, talks, films, performances and workshops which creatively explore our relationship to nature and the climate emergency.

The Creative Cabin - a space to create, explore, learn and discover!


Cabin Out + About

CREATIVE CABIN SHORTS - as our Creative Cabin is grounded during lockdown, we bring you CREATIVE CABIN SHORTS: an inspiring digital programme of short films. Working with SW artists, rangers and practitioners, CREATIVE CABIN SHORTS connect to nature and the landscapes around us.

THG Out & About: This programme was launched in February 2020 with ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long, an exhibition of works by the Turner Prize winning artist, Richard Long, whose acclaimed career at the forefront of conceptual art has investigated the relationship between people and nature. Continuing to explore the themes of the exhibition, the Creative Cabin has been made possible by ARTIST ROOMS with the support of Art Fund, Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Community Fund.

Education and Outreach

As well as individuals and families, the cabin will bring activities to groups most in need including schools, colleges, Memory Cafés, Devon Recovery Learning Community, Devon Young Carers, Refugee Support Groups, Devon Insight, and Headlight – an Action East Devon service for young people encountering mental health issues.

The Creative Cabin is an outcome of THG’s Culture + Climate 2020 programme, which sought to question our complicated relationship with nature and help identify new ways to coexist.

Our Gallery Engagement officer, Anna Aroussi, has been awarded the prestigious Marsh Award in 2021 for dedication and excellence in Gallery Education. Read more
