Sweet Waters; Fringe Art Bath; curated by Richard White; BSU PhD

Sweet Waters: June 10- 21. Short and longer creative performative walks along the River Avon between Bath and Bristol sensing 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.
Opportunities to gather sound, and images, sketch, share talk and think.
Its not a history walk, we will make it what we make it. Its about us.

A few places are left on a number of these walks.The walks progressively build up to a return walk from Avonmouth on midsummer’s day, Weds 21 June. Walking all the way back to Bath up the river from dawn to dusk, walking with the tide, sharing, gathering sounds images and thoughts.
