Rivers of the World Exhibition 2021

Opening: 07/09/21 – 26/09/21 | Free

Join us for Rivers of the World, an exhibition of artwork created by young people in Liverpool City Region and Zimbabwe exploring rivers in local and international contexts.

Rivers of the World is an arts-based environmental learning project linking schools around the world through the study of rivers.  The project is a creative exchange between Key Stage 3 pupils from Liverpool City Region and Zimbabwe, working in partnership with artists Eugene Mapondera, Adam Sadiq and Hector Dyer.

The project encourages the international exchange of creative ideas and environmental learning, providing young people with the opportunity to collaborate with professional artists, explore creative and STEM career paths, connect with students participating in the Rivers of the World project in other countries and see their artwork exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.

Rivers of the World is a Thames Festival Trust project delivered in partnership with the British Council. Since its creation in 2005, Rivers of the World has been delivered in forty countries around the world, currently including Malawi, Kenya, Palestine, Morocco, Ethiopia, Sudan, Lebanon, Tanzania & India and across the UK in London, Reading, Hull, Southend-on-Sea, Worcestershire, Exeter, Warrington, Halton, Peterborough, Stockton-on-Tees and Coventry.

The Liverpool strand of the project is led by Metal in partnership with Open Eye Gallery.
