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

Dear friends and colleagues, near and far
Held at Gallery 44AD in the centre of Bath, the exhibition brings together images, music and video installations made in collaboration with people and organisations in west Namibia.
It will be a contemplative space where the themes of sustainability, identity and displacement weaving through our research are evoked in registers beyond academic critique.
We will also be hosting a virtual version of the exhibition – please come and visit! For those in Namibia, from 2018 we’ll be reconvening the exhibition in Windhoek and beyond. We hope to see you in one or more of these spaces.

In the image above, a Damara / ≠Nūkhoen woman walks through the landscape at Sorris-Sorris, west Namibia. Her voluminous dress echoes those worn by European
missionaries in the 1800s, signalling the complex and hybrid histories enacted in this arid African land.

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.
