Sweet Waters is walking with legacies of British slave-ownership, revealing reluctant heritage. Water. Life. Trade.
A cycle of participatory performative walks and creative dialogues in Bath and along the River Avon.
From rain to river to sea to sky and back: walking-with heritage, memories, silences, absences, stories, relics…..
making the return thinking with our whole bodies .. shame, race, exile, sugar, tobacco, cotton, war…

An ongoing project.

Sweet Waters: starting points uses a clip from an interview Sarah Connolly did with Richard White. The video offers an overview of the project ideas in particular the mashing of the ‘triangular trade’ with a memory of the watercycle. Sarah did the interview as part of an Avon Stories podcast walking a section of the River Avon on the edge of Bristol.
