A sensory journey through the seasons, where Helen will talk about how images tell the tales of our lives, sharing the stories behind some of her own photographs.
Helen was a fascinating and engaging speaker and the participants enjoyed a thought-provoking and relaxing session, based around wellbeing and the natural world.

It has been a pleasure from start to finish to work with author Helen Rook and Michelle Hodgson from Huddersfield Literature Festival to bring this event around Helens book ’Urban Wild’ to realisation. As We helped Helen explore some likely Urban Wild locations in Huddersfield it was clear that she shared with Support to Recovery’s Great Outdoors Project a common approach to finding inspiration for our wellbeing close to home, in the unofficial countryside of our neighbourhoods. The photos we took together that afternoon will give us all a small legacy of a moment we spent together, being present, with the beginning of spring in an urban wild Oasis.
