Rivers of the World 2021

Home > Projects > Rivers of the World 2021

Rivers of the World is an arts-based environmental learning project linking schools around the world through the study of rivers.  The project brings together Key Stage 3 pupils from Liverpool schools and professional arts facilitators to create collaborative artworks, while establishing a creative exchange with school children in Zimbabwe, to explore the meaning of rivers in local and international city contexts. 

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 thirty five 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
