Learning at Dartington

We take a ‘Head, Heart and Hands’ approach to all forms of learning at Dartington.

You’ll see this in action if you’re studying on one of our undergraduate or postgraduate degrees at Schumacher College or Dartington Arts School, enjoying an immersive short course experience, or simply attending one of the many talks, festivals and other events we hold year-round.

We believe that through all this activity, we can address the great challenges of our time through driving positive societal change – and invite you to be a part of it, no matter where you are in life.

For any visitors enjoying walks on the estate this week, please be aware that there is currently a large fallen oak blocking all access to the "concrete path" which runs from the corner of Warren Lane and Park Road.

The path, which leads behind Dynamic Adventures and Park School down to the river, is closed to all walkers and vehicles until the end of the week - the earliest tree surgeons can come to clear the way.

The tree has suffered what is known as "Sudden Oak Drop" where an oak tree under stress will drop a limb.

The closest alternative path leading to the river runs from by the turning circle at Aller Park.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Tune in tonight for a livestreamed talk at the Garden Museum in London, where Dan Pearson will talk about the plans he has produced for the Gardens at Dartington.

Our Head Gardener Neville Evans will also be there highlighting our current gardens fundraising campaign.

Tickets for the livestream, 7 - 8pm tonight, are just £10.

Writer. Mother. Martyr?

Join us next week for this urgent new play from Totnes-based Moveable Type Theatre Company.

Respected journalist Ulrike Meinhof shocked the world in 1970 by putting down her pen and joining the urban guerillas of the Red Army Faction. 50 years on, Meinhof’s words, life and legacy remain as relevant, and as provocative, as ever.

Moveable Type Theatre Company explores the passion and violence of Meinhof’s short life, and asks us to find our own balance between protest and resistance.

7.30pm, Wednesday 7 June 2023 | Studio 1, Dartington Trust | £12
