Who We Are
Find out more about the people you will meet at our events.
Quests and Retreats was the brainchild of Wide Open’s Jan Hogarth and Tom Littlewood who have a passion for culture, the arts, health and landscape. Quests and Retreats celebrates the deep cultural connections of the landscape in South Scotland and aims to create a sustainable cultural tourism project which helps support cultural thinkers, artists, healers, poets and musicians as they share with you their passion and deep connection with the landscape that inspires them.
We are very grateful to some of Scotland’s most talented photographers for the use of their images on this site. Thanks to Mike Bolam, Alex Boyd, Alison Boyes, Colin Hattersley, Andy Jardine, Justin K Prim, Colin Tennant, Sian Yeshe Blackburn
Also to the very talented Tonia Lu who designed this website with sensitivity and empathy for its ethos and aesthetic.
We would like to thank Dumfries and Galloway Council and DGUnlimited for some grant support for development work.
