Sweet Waters: sense-ing legacies of slave-ownership in Bath and along the River Avon (2016-17)
An eight-day cycle of walks and creative dialogues, walking-with cycles of water, life and trade. Presented as part of the Festival of Nature and Bath Festival Fringe 2017, Sweet Waters sought to reveal reluctant heritage in the UNESCO designated World Heritage Site of Bath (UK) through attending to the legacies of slave-ownership in a city and region where those legacies have been obscured and disregarded. The cycle concluded with an installation, Sweet Waters: Soundings.
