With sponsorship from Heritage Lottery and local Bristol businesses
13 year olds who plan to study GCSE Art next year explore the gallery exhibition and visit the tidal regions of Bristol and the Avon Gorge. They then built and decorate models of the iconic heritage boats of Bristol; creating an art installation in the RWA gallery. Finally they will sail their boats as a performance event in Bristol's Floating Harbour.
The project is part of The Bristol Initiative Trust's Learning Ships programme which makes young people aware of the importance of the tidal regions to their cultural identity and their responsibility to enage with the future of these unique regions.
