What Is Water

1 May


I’ve been scribbling in my sketchbook again, this time at an event called “What Is Water” which brought together poets, storytellers and academics to share their experience of water and river systems through the spoken word. It was really innovative to hear an academic presentation by Dr. Emily O’Gorman, an Australian geographer, interspersed with poems, stories, reflections and even bongos!

It was organised by the FIRE Lab (Freshwater Interdisciplinary Research and Engagement) from Swansea University. It’s a fascinating project looking at human relationships with freshwater ecosystems and specifically the River Tawe, integrating sciences and the arts over the next four years or so.
