June 13th: Gathering a Virtual Cargo (1)

Sweet Waters: short and longer creative performative walks along the River Avon between Bath and Bristol sensing the legacies of slave-ownership. Wayfaring in obscured histories, reflecting on flow, cycle and memory; alert for sounds, voices, tears, sweat and blood suspended in the water.

From Keynsham to Bristol.
