As a result of my work with Minty Donald last month, on the Queer River Wet Land project with The University of Glasgow, we have put together a performance score to invite others to get involved remotely.
The score, available to download below, invites people to engage with their local river and consider the relationship between the water and the land. We are asking people to share their responses with us via social media using the #QueerRiverWetLand hashtag, or send them via email, for inclusion in this blog.
We will also be running an online event at 5pm on Thursday 25th November, where we will share the outcomes of the Queer River Wet Land project in more depth, with input from invited speakers and a range of responses to the score. As soon as the booking details for this free event have been confirmed I will add them here.
We are really looking forward to you sharing your responses, however playful or simple they may be. So please download the score, take a walk with your river, and see what happens.

Reblogged this on Climate Museum UK and commented:
Climate Museum UK Associate Artist James Aldridge is inviting people to collaborate with him as part of the Queer River, Wet Land project that he has been running with The University of Glasgow.
By downloading the performance score put together by James with Glasgow based Artist Minty Donald, you can be supported to engage creatively with your own local river, and share the outcomes via the Queer River blog and/or social media.
James’s work on the project developed after hearing about The Dear Green Bothy (University of Glasgow’s COP26 linked arts/cultural festival) through CMUK, and links well with our own Acts of River Kindness workshops, run during lockdown by James with Beckie Leach and Lucy Carruthers (see #ActsOfRiverKindness on social media).
I just read this and thought it appropriate to connect – see the editorial note on the Intro to issue#13 https://www.darkmatterwomenwitnessing.com/issues/Sept2021/index.html
Thank you Chris, much appreciated
