It is pleasing to have the chance to make some work in my home city. I am just starting as lead artist on a project for the Canal & River Trust in Gloucester Docks, in association with SVA. Working with three other artists, visual artist Emily Joy, poet and writer Ralph Hoyte and artist/model maker/animator Colin Higginson, we will be making new work for the CRT offices in Gloucester over the next three months. Each artist will be paired with a CRT ‘ambassador’, someone who is especially knowledgeable or enthusiastic about a particular part of the waterways or the collection in the Waterways Museum. (The key here is navigation: a waterway has to be navigable to be part of the CRT network, so can include canals as well as rivers.) I will keep you posted as to how it goes. Laura, looking forward to meeting up at the beginning of April to set the project in motion.
