Our work with partner schools and the Thames Festival Trust for this year's Rivers of the World Festival is currently on exhibition in London.
Working with professional artists, participants explore environmental, social, ecological and cultural aspects of their river and communities. They then create immense artworks inspired by their findings which help share their stories, ideas and hopes.
