Upstream:Downstream (Part Two- Witton Bridge)

Over April there is a piece of work (that will be added to over the month) on both Holford and Witton Bridges. The work on the UPSTREAM side of  Witton Bridge (above) explores the history of the River Tame; each jam jar contains a photograph of the river through its history, and memories, poetry and thoughts about the river heritage. On the DOWNSTREAM side (below) are thoughts collected from various parts of the Tamed project, including the Mobile Drawing Studio, Deykin Avenue School and art workshops, exploring the here & now and the future of the River Tame.
