Canal & River Trust Exhibitions

A strategy of appointing local curators and displaying work by artists who live and work in each area gave an opportunity for Canal & River Trust staff to engage with contemporary art that resonated with their daily work. Bringing art into these working environments offers a way of involving and inspiring new audiences in contemporary art, offering a fresh perspective on the world around us and creating a working environment where creativity and innovation are valued. The curators and artists worked closely with the Trust’s staff to create exhibitions that were meaningful to them and that integrated with their work setting.
