Hinterlands is a national programme of socially engaged arts projects along three stretches of waterways across England and Wales.
Drawing on the emerging themes from Phase 1 of the project, and other Trust-led arts engagement projects such as Super Slow Way and The Ring, the next phase will establish strong senses of place, connection and belonging along the selected stretches of waterways.
With support from both Arts Council England and the Arts Council of Wales, three creative producers are now in place and collaborating with local groups and artists.
Hinterlands has helped grow our reputation across England and Wales as an innovative force for creative and social change at a local level. The activities will demonstrate how canals are able to provide real wellbeing benefits for visitors in terms of engagement, mental health and creative skills.
Information about each Hinterlands location will be coming soon
