Description

For 150 years canals were the high-tech water machine driving the industrial revolution. Amazing feats of engineering, they carried the rural into the city and the urban into the countryside and changed the lives of everyone. And then, just when their purpose was extinguished by modern transport, they were saved from extinction and repurposed as a 'slow highways' network, a peaceful and countrywide haven from our too-busy age. Today, there are more boats on the canals than in their Victorian heyday.

Join Canal & River Trust Writer in Residence Jasper Winn and Canal Laureate Nancy Campbell on-board Ikon's Slow Boat as they share their work inspired by canals and discuss their passion for Britain's waterways.

This event with be chaired by poet and former Canal Laureate Jo Bell.

Organised in partnership with Ikon Gallery.
