"Crossings at the National Waterways Museum Gloucester
Coming to the Gloucester Docks this summer is an immersive art installation from international renowned artist Luke Jerram. Row out into the Gloucester Docks whilst listening to stories about boats from around the world. The nine rowing boats are decorated with imagery relating to the stories.
Transport yourself into the world of the story tellers through a 30-minute audio journey to another life; another circumstance. The live sounds of the rowing boats and the docks will blend with the recorded audio, to help create a truly engaging and immersive experience.
Crossings has been created by Luke Jerram in collaboration with BBC Radio 4 producer Julian May. Luke Jerram is an internationally renowned UK artist, specialising in sculpture and installations that inspire and enthral audiences. His work in Gloucester in recent years has included Museum of the Moon and Gaia at Gloucester Cathedral and Of Earth And Sky at locations across the city.
Crossings will be at the National Waterways Museum Gloucester, 9th August - 3rd September 2023. Booking will open at the end of July.
Crossings is supported by Arts Council England and Gloucester Council's New Project and Commission Fund."

About Canal & River Trust
Canals need many hands to look after them and by volunteering with us you can help make even more miles of canal blue, green and better.
Volunteering is a great way to get active and meet new people, all against the backdrop of our country's stunning canals and rivers. With your help we can help wildlife thrive, and people can find health, happiness and wellbeing on their doorstep.
No other charity brings so much free, open, and accessible blue and green space to the doorstep of so many. With your support, we can continue our work. Our vision is to have living waterways that transform places and enrich lives.
We care for a 2,000-mile-long, 200-year-old, network of canals, rivers, reservoirs and docks because we believe that life is better by water. We provide a space where people can feel happier and healthier, nature is recovering and history is alive. A space for boating, angling, cycling, walking, paddling or just watching the world drift by. Our research shows that spending time by water, whether it be your lunchbreak, daily commute or just a weekend stroll, really can make us feel happier and healthier.
That’s why, here at the Trust, we're working with volunteers and communities across England and Wales to transform canals and rivers into spaces where local people want to spend time and feel better. We know this will bring wellbeing opportunities to millions.
