About the Oak Project

We’re creating a national arts programme that creatively encourages diverse people to explore their relationship with the natural world and connect to nature.

Nature Connection 

Three of the most important issues of our time – the climate emergency, wildlife loss and the mental health crisis – have one thing at their heart: the relationship between people and nature.

“Three quarters of UK children spend less time outdoors than prison inmates”

Who we are 

The Oak Project is a partnership between Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the University of Derby and the Bronze Oak Project Ltd, a not-for-profit that promotes nature connection through art.
