'Boat Project' / Amber Mottram & Ellie Young





Boat Project / Amber Mottram & Ellie Young

Boat Project is an idea that has emerged from a desire to make our historic canal system a focal point for creativity, community activity and cultural dialogue by: creating links between Wales and British cities connected through the canal network, providing opportunities for young/emerging Welsh artists in the form of a residency program, creating a unique platform for artists to explore and create with 'journey' as a starting point and the idiosyncrasies of canal life as inspiration, and providing a new pathway for bringing established artists into Wales.
