Telling the Towpath is a sound based artwork made up of community voices. It forms part of Wandering the Weir, a community art project centred around the Leamington Spa stretch of the Grand Union Canal and the surrounding areas along the towpath. The project is interested in people's memories and experiences of the canal, its folklore and history, development, and looking to the future of the canal.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
