Forest Stacks

What is Forest Stacks?

Forest Stacks is an exciting new community building initiative based in Garvagh Forest. We’re working with an excellent team of artists, architects, apprentices, and local people to create temporary public spaces for everyone to use in the forest. A part of the Playstacks initiative, Forest Stacks also contributes to the Garvagh Peoples Forest Project which is currently creating value in the forest with and for local people enhancing the forest, community life and well-being.

Community well-being is at the centre of this project, aiming to use the spaces as a celebratory, community-led gathering place for local people. We believe in the transformative power of gathering through creative cultural activity. When people come together to work collectively, to share aspects of their culture and creative expression, they can create something valuable for themselves and their community.

Forest Stacks provides that temporary space of meaning, like an extension of the kitchen table involving conversation, food, craft, making, designing, building, storytelling and performance  – very often touching on journeys, belonging, faith and creativity.

How can you get involved in Forest Stacks?

We’re calling on all creative citizens, volunteers and local people to get involved in the project. We want to give local people the opportunity to try out designs and building processes and present creative responses to the idea of creating temporary spaces in the forest.

Whether you’re a woodworker, a crafter, a painter, or a dab hand at DIY, if you can give time and creative energy, or have an interest and are willing to learn, we want to hear from you!

Forest Stacks is a practical, hands on project and it is about creating something truly unique in Garvagh Forest.

The project will be active over the Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring leading towards a huge celebration in Garvagh People’s Forest in the Spring of 2019.

For more information and to register your interest fill out our simple form.

Or if you want to chat to someone from our team, get in touch at info@vaireland.org.


Join us for an open information session about the project in The Pantry Cafe, Garvagh this September.

To get a flavour of the project, come along to our open information session where we will be brainstorming, creating and making, with lots of cake!
