27 Jan Reflections: Participant Call Out
Collective Remembering: Lockdown and the River Tay
Did you spend time along the River Tay last year?
Maybe you became one of the brave folks who started wild swimming, or you faced your fears and went sailing for the first time, or you saw the famous dolphins, or maybe you simply spent time watching the water.
If the Tay feels important to you – for whatever reason – we’d love to talk to you!
Reflections seeks to listen to the stories from local people about their relationship with the River Tay during the unique year that was 2020. We collectively experienced a period of human history that has touched us all in profound ways. We want to capture the ways that the River Tay influenced those experiences in a series of recorded conversations that will form a new oral archive collection for our city. Your contribution will help us to create a unique response to a unique year.
Local visual, textile and spoken word artists will create responses to these stories – creating visual and oral representations of our collective memories that celebrate the unique connection between city and river.
If you feel connected to the River Tay in whatever way – big or small – and would like your story to be part of our city’s history, please get in touch!
All conversations will follow Covid regulations and can be recorded online.
If you’d like to get involved, please contact Rio email@example.com by Monday 1st February 2021.
