A River Runs Through It
A new event is set to explore the wonders of rivers.
Hosted by arts group Waveney and Blyth Arts, A River Runs Through It, will take place at The Ivy House Country Hotel in Oulton Broad.
The event, which will include illustrated presentations, a musical interlude, refreshments and a lunch, will take place on Wednesday, April 25 2018.
People will discover how rivers shape the landscape and communities that dwell around them, and how artist-led projects can encourage us to explore, understand and protect this important heritage
The conference is aimed at anyone involved in conservation or river-based heritage, landscape artists in all media, ecowarriors of all ages and anyone who loves being on, in or near rivers.
The day will feature fascinating and inspiring speakers from the environmental, academic and arts worlds, at a venue nestled on the banks of Oulton Broad amongst 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds, marshes, and thatched barns, with direct access onto the broads. There will also be an optional post-conference guided walk on nearby Carlton Marshes nature reserve.
Nicky Stainton, who heads up Waveney & Blyth Arts, said: “Bringing together artists, environmentalists and scientists to share their diverse responses to these significant shapers of our landscape will make for a stimulating day. As a species we have a deep affinity with water and this event will help to explore and celebrate that connection.”
A River Runs Through It, will take place between 10am and 3.45pm on Wednesday, April 25. It is supported by The Suffolk Coast DMO.
Tickets are £40 per person and include lunch and refreshments; £5 discount for bookings before 18 March and for members of Waveney & Blyth Arts.
