‘An Autumn programme on the Mon & Brec exploring climate, colonialisation, food, land, slowness, deep time and radical futures.
Season 2 of Ahoi! What Grows Here? extends our previous activity at Pontymoile Basin and sets sail along the length of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal during Autumn 2020. Repurposing a narrowboat as a roving larder market stall and conversation space, Storm Kitchen will travel slowly from Brecon to Pontypool during October 2020 guided by artists Owen Griffiths and Ella Gibbs and an incredible group of speakers, activists and thinkers. We’re excited to announce historian-in-residence Abu-Bakr Madden Al-Shabazz and artists-in-residence Beau W Beakhouse and Sadia Pineda Hameed who will be responding and researching throughout the Season 2 of Ahoi! What Grows Here?’
‘Imagining potentials of the waterway as a site for excavation, a passage to share and a surface that reflects. Drawing out the abstracts; the edges and the willingly forgotten meanings of the area's waterway.’
