Earthed Conversations – The River’s Role

Expert Speakers – Avon Crescent  resident Anna Wilson and Bristol Lock Keeper John Rosenthal.

John enlightened us on what a huge engineering project the construction of the floating harbour was, talked us through his life on the river and as a lock keeper and explained how the waters around Bristol had changed over time. Anna described her experiences in the recent flooding and talked about her hopes for the future of the area. She also discussed her project ‘High Water Line’ with Invisible Dust.

Workshops 

Earth Graffiti: Practical river-inspired mud graffiti art workshop with Mick Petts.

River Writes: Practical river-inspired site responsive writing workshop with David Lane.

The Big Dig

We returned to the dig site and uncovered even more items from the site. This time we hit a layer of clay-like group and made some interesting discoveries.

Artists Talk 

 

At the end of the day we all sat down to enjoy Earthed Reflections where Mick Petts and David Lane selected the discoveries, questions, creations and quotations that inspired them most from the second day of the Earthed Weekender.
