Confluence is a panel discussion with six artists who have made public works in response to the Thames. Maria Arceo, Dr. Cathy Fitzgerald, Raewyn Harrison, Anne Krinsky, Dr. Loraine Leeson and Ali Pretty will be in conversation with Curator Colette Bailey.

About

 Bailey is the Director of METAL and also curates the biannual Estuary Festival.

The conversation will examine the artistic process of channeling a passion for the Thames into a public art work. The artists work in a range of media – sound, sculpture, photography, video, ceramics, paint and projection and several have created participatory events. Taken together their works investigate the river's varied aspects – its biodiversity, plastics and pollution, stories from river communities, Thames architectural structures and archeology of the foreshore. 

The event is part of London's 2017 Totally Thames Festival. Booking on Eventbrite.
