The Suffolk Coast

A River Runs Through It at Ivy House Country Hotel

Be Inspired by the River at this one day event.

Waveney & Blyth Arts presents a one day conference to highlight and celebrate the role of rivers in creating our landscape and settlements, providing a haven for wildlife, impacting on our creative responses and providing us with powerful metaphors.

The day features fascinating and inspiring speakers from the environmental, academic and arts worlds including Tom Williamson, Professor of landscape history, on rivers as place makers, with particular focus on the Waveney and Blyth; writer and angler Charles Rangeley–Wilson, author of The Silt Road, reflecting on water; Dr Jos Smith on the influence of environmental arts group Common Ground and the Confluence project; and Simon Hooton on the potential offered by the Water, Mills and Marshes Landscape Partnership project. PLUS artists working in a variety of media will explain their response to the river: Ruth Wharrier – botanical painter, Joanna Guthrie – poet, and Karen Wimhurst – composer. And the Sensing Nature Ensemble of blind and visually impaired musicians will share their musical responses to the theme. With an optional walk on adjacent Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve.
