Our canals offer a vital source of creative inspiration and wellbeing for many people up and down the country.
Together with the Poetry Society, we introduce our new canal laureate, Roy McFarlane for 2022. We'll also continue our Hinterlands project and showcase more street art transformations.
Walking on Water
Cara Thompson is a Nottingham-based poet and writer who we've worked with to lead community poetry workshops in Nottingham, exploring the cultural heritage of the city's waterways.
Walking on Water is a piece that was specially commissioned to celebrate the city's waterside roots and the enduring appeal of the Nottingham & Beeston Canal, 250 years after it was built.
