FLOW will deliver an exciting series of new site specific artworks that explore and respond to the journey of water through the county focusing on different aspects of the county’s waterways, from its major canals and rivers, to its iconic water towers and reservoirs.
Confirmed artists and organisations within the programme include Jo Fairfax, Charles Monkhouse, Steve Messam, Fermynwoods Contemporary Arts and The Fishmarket Gallery.
FLOW is a Northamptonshire County Council led project delivered in partnership with Anglian Water and British Waterways and is associated with the regional Breath of Fresh Air programme that encourages local communities to engage with the environment.
FLOW is the flagship project within the 2011 Igniting Ambition Festival in Northamptonshire and part of the Cultural Olympiad in the East Midlands, which invests in projects, and people that take the London 2012 Games as their inspiration to create once-in-a-lifetime cultural opportunities for audiences and communities.
Igniting Ambition is funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to create a cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games, the European Regional Development Fund and the East Midlands Development Agency, with the support of Arts Council England and many others.
