Working the Tweed: new work for Year of Natural Scotland

The ‘Working the Tweed’ project brings together Kate Foster (visual artist), Jules Horne (writer), Claire Pençak (choreographer) and James Wyness (composer) with local environmental organisations Tweed Forum and Southern Uplands Partnership.  It is one of 14 projects across Scotland to be awarded ‘Year of Natural Scotland 2013’ funding, and will focus on the iconic River Tweed from source to mouth, and particularly the people that work on and around it. We aim to try and capture the voices of the people that work the Tweed, and bring to the surface some of the more hidden worlds, maps and languages of the river.
