Reminder and additions to this exciting programme of watery art, film and music on Sunday July 2, Bristol – Down By the River

As well as the programme on the poster below we have

A late addition to the line-up is the oud/African+Arabic music duo, Nabra, which brings into WCB other facet of ‘water connectivity’, beyond the local. ie – global people movements over water – migration/refugees etc.

The global connectivity is enhanced also by the appearance (also MC for the night) of Helena Enright – from Limerick on the River Shannon in Ireland (also via Bath Spa Uni)

Should be a lovely celebration of a myriad of water linkages and WaterCityBristol (WCB), through poetry, film, theatre and music

Included in the billing is Lucy Izzard’s new River Avon+Eel animated film – Protect The Eels. This has had over 1000 views on YouTube, in less than two weeks!

This is hosted by the ‘Hidden Tides’ commissioned artists – Letterpress Collective, at their event space in CentreSpace Studios.
