Rebecca Chesney Artist Residency

Rebecca Chesney has recently just been appointed artist-in-residence across the 20 mile stretch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to explore the environment and habitats along the canal stretch.

Rebecca will be working with people who live alongside the canal to investigate and imagine its possibilities. Together they will explore the flora and fauna along the way: plants, animals, insects and birds using the canal as a habitat, and look at our relationship with the nature of the canal, how we share the space and the impact we have on each other in order to think about the possibilities to enhance and encourage what is already there.

Rebecca’s residency forms part of our current Linear Park feasibility study in partnership with Canal & River Trust, Lancashire County Council, Creative Lancashire and ¬†Arts Council England – read more about this here: https://superslowway.org.uk/news/linear-park-feasibility-study/
