Altered Festival (2015)

Altered Festival 2015 transformed eight ancient rural churches in Lincolnshire during May 2015.
Internationally-renowned artists presented thought-provoking installations and hosted workshops for local communities.

The festival marked the conclusion of Altered: Contemporary Art in Ancient Churches – an initiative led by the University of Lincoln, the Diocese of Lincoln and artsNK – which has challenged audiences to view historic church buildings in new ways through innovative artworks. It took place in the Lincolnshire villages of Grasby, Greetwell, Burgh Le Marsh, Burton Pedwardine, Heckington, Swineshead, Aslackby and Gedney.

New work by acclaimed artists Emilie Voirin, Katy Armes, Martin Smith and Dan Fox was shown alongside four previous Altered commissions from Pat Van Boeckel, Davy & Kristin McGuire, William Lindley and Lynn Dennison & Gen Doy.
