Radion is a collaborative project that explores Basildon’s past and present with a focus on nature and heritage within the borough. Basildon Borough History, Basildon Borough Heritage, its volunteers and local people have been suggesting pieces of built heritage to be celebrated and remembered within the Borough. These images have been used to create a panorama depicting an alternative skyline of Basildon from a chronological perspective.
Students from ten local primary schools including Ryedene, Lee Chapel, Millhouse, Fairhouse, Pionner, Janet Duke, Noak Bridge, Great Berry, Northlands and Ghyllgrove School have all been exploring the importance of local nature through leaf rubbings and identification. The nature panorama depicts key green spaces around the borough with each leaf inserted (over 2,000) having been made by a different child.
Accompanying the screen is a series of QR codes which intend to animate the screen, from an audio history tour spoken by local people, a nature map showing where each schools leaves can be found and more.
The Radion Project is funded by Basildon Council and Arts Council.
