Circus Artspace presents: Bridging Water
To celebrate 200 years of the Caledonian Canal, Bridging Water will light up the old and the new Tomnahurich Bridges in Inverness on Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 October. You are invited to join us for this free outdoor event which will include a new commissioned light projection from artist Sadie Stoddart (developed in collaboration with Wild Bird) and an artists film programme themed around waterways displayed on the new control tower, plus refreshments and a drop-in exhibition.
Moored between the two Tomnahurich Bridges, the Loch Ness Barge – a historic Caledonian Canal dredger, will also showcase artwork made in collaboration with young people from communities along the Great Glen this summer during our Inland Navigation project supported by Historic Environment Scotland. Aboard the boat there will be an interactive canal heritage display from Scottish Canals’ heritage officer and a retired Tomnahurich Bridge keeper.
Free, all welcome – wrap up warm as this event is outdoors!
Bridging Water is funded by Scottish Canals with technical support from Wild Bird and additional lighting from 21cc.
