Super Slow Way, Rhapsody to the Leeds & Liverpool Canal

This major £2.5m arts programme is being shaped by artists and people of Pennine Lancashire. Led by Super Slow Way’s director, Laurie Peake, local, national and international artists and arts organisations are working with communities on commissions and residencies inspired by the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

Upcoming highlights will include O.K The Musical in April, a co-commission with Tate Liverpool, which brings Berlin-based artist Christopher Kline to Lancashire and Liverpool to work with community groups on a musical about his hometown Kinderhook, New York. In the summer, Super Slow Way will be bringing HOME47 to Lancashire as part of a co-commission with Manchester International Festival. The work by Sharmeen Obadi-Chinoy (double Oscar winning filmmaker) is a film installation responding to the 70th anniversary of the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan and the resulting mass migration. In the Autumn a new season, Fabrications, will explore the use of textiles in contemporary art and the vibrant history and future of the local textiles industry fed by the canal corridor through a series of commissions, residencies, workshops and a large symposium event.
