An exciting photography exhibition by Totnes-born photographer Aubrey Simpson, capturing those who work across the Dartington Hall estate.

We wanted to pay tribute to a diverse community of businesses that are welcoming, supportive and enterprising – and to celebrate the colourful and confident creatives living out Dartington’s legacy.

This exhibition explores the diversity of people currently running enterprises on the Dartington Hall estate. It celebrates notions of individual and collective identities and asks a question – ‘how did you get here?’ – inspired by the lyrics of the Talking Heads song, Once in a Lifetime. The work, by photographer Aubrey Simpson, investigates particular movements or activities that become the marker of this unique community.

Dartington Hall Estate is home to 175 independent businesses employing over 1,500 people. Since 1925 enterprise has always been an important part of the Dartington Experiment; a community of craftspeople, artists and specialist professionals.

Potters, textile weavers, furniture designers, glass makers, craftsmen builders, artists and makers have established thriving businesses here, and traded locally and nationally and internationally.
