As part of the first ever Reading on Thames Festival, young people from six local secondary schools were invited to take part in this global project – guided by professional artists – to create huge artworks for public display. Local pupils teamed up with secondary schools in Nepal to create the fabulous artwork which forms the Rivers of the World exhibition.
Rivers of the World is an international art and education project delivered by Totally Thames Festival in partnership with the British Council. The exhibition connects pupils around the globe to their local river through environmental, economic and cultural learning.
Following a launch event on Tuesday 12 September – the exhibition is now open for you to come and see the wonderful art created.
When: Wednesday 13 September until Sunday 17 September
Time: 9am until 5pm each day
Where: The Weller Centre (formerly Amersham Road Community Centre) Lower Caversham, RG4 5NA
The exhibition is kindly brought to Reading through generous funding from Thames Water, Reading Rescue and Connect Reading.
