This event was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Developed in partnership with Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow International’s Canal Programme includes a major new commission by Glasgow-based artist Alberta Whittle, as well as related activities on and around the canal – including workshops with local community groups, talks, guided tours, performances, and film screenings. Th programme offers visitors the opportunity to discover important overlooked stories relating to the industrial legacy of Glasgow’s canals. Information about the project is available to collect from Navvies Barge, a canal boat moored at the Applecross Basin, with canal boat tours available on selected dates in the festival.
Supported by EventScotland in celebration of the Year of Coasts and Waters 2020, Glasgow Connected Arts Network, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation
