Harvey is the National Trust regional curator for the Lake District.
Harvey Wilkinson grew up in North Cumbria, where he developed his love of fell and alpine running. He has a BA in Fine Art and studied for an MA in Design Theory before going on to curate the arts collections of various historic houses.
He has been the National Trust regional curator for the Lake District since 2014.
The Lake District was recently named a UNESCO World Heritage site for it’s cultural status, but what is a cultural landscape?
In his session Big Rocks: Culture and the Lake Districts climbing landscape he discusses how does climbing history and bouldering venues such as The Bowderstone reflect our changing attitude to nature ?
