Part of Being Human Festival 2021

Join art practitioners Rachel Clive and Kirsty Stansfield for this interactive, cross-arts workshop, exploring how we can connect creatively with rivers – and with each other – when we are confined and separated, be that because of COVID-19 or any other reason. The session forms a central part of a 6-month intergenerational arts project, working across two residential institutions and the University of Glasgow. The project will generate a collaboratively designed and created artwork, whose form and content will depend on the interests of the participants. The artwork will travel between people and institutions, evolving through a shared connection with the River Clyde.

Limited spaces available.

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
