ART & DIALOGUE is a London based initiative created in 2021 by Della Gooden and Richard Bell. For further information and queries about this aspect of the site please use the contact form.


The Mercus Barn is based near the City of Foix, in the Ariège Pyrenees and is situated in a landscape once occupied by the Cro-Magnon civilisation (a particular source of fascination for founder, David Saunders. The Grotte de Niaux is 15 minutes away by car and has some of the finest examples of cave art open to the public from this Upper Paleolithic period).
