Pop-up Art Stall and Water

APL’s Maggie Roe, Reader in Landscape Planning Research & Policy Engagement, has worked with the artist Antony Lyons (based in Bristol) on the production of a pop-up art stall using everyday items to creatively express research based on a study into people’s relationships with water.  Following the kittiwakes that nest on the River Tyne, and the eels within the River Avon, the ‘Undercurrents’ project and resulting exhibitions explore connections between mind, body and water using natural science understandings and cultural connections to these species.   Further details on this project are available via http://www.watercitybristol.org/blog/undercurrents-a-bricolage.  The work will be included in the Science Uncovered evening at the Great North Museum: Hancock on Friday 30th September 6-10pm, an event funded under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme https://twmuseums.org.uk/news/science-uncovered-comes-to-newcastle-for-the-first-time
