RIVER OF LIFE

River of Life lead artists:

Anthony Rogers 

Barry Cooper

Artists Anthony Rogers and Barry Cooper ran workshops to highlight the significance of the River Frome.

 

It is all too easy to cross it almost without noticing it, but the River Frome has had a crucial historical role in the growth of our town and this project aimed to encourage an awareness of, and reconnection with, the river for those living here now.

 

At the workshops there were opportunities to make and decorate wooden boats and rafts, carve simple chalk figures to put inside them or simply write a message about your hopes and aspirations for the future of Frome to be placed within the vessels.
