As the river starts its life, it begins to move, meandering in search of the simple path'. Its tributaries reach out charting its course - and along its carved paths communities follow and forge relations, becoming active in the river's ecology. Artists Chelsea Canavan & Deirdre Power invited communities of interest to keep a journal beginning in January 2021. The Water Paths Archive is a collection of shared conversations around the cultural and ecological heritage of riverine communities, those who engage daily with the river, swimmers, river residents, boaters and writers, those who make visible the everyday life of our water.
