Working the Tweed - Riverside Meeting Part 5

Working the Tweed is A Year of Natural Scotland 2013 collaboration between artists Kate Foster (visual artist), Jules Horne (writer), Claire Pençak (choreographer) and James Wyness (composer) and environmentalists from Tweed Forum and Southern Uplands Partnership in the Scottish Borders.
Megget Dam and Reservoir Interpretation Board 

As part of this project, Working the Tweed are holding a riverside meeting on Thursday November 14th  9.30 am – 1.30 pm with professional creative practitioners living and working in the Tweed Catchment and aim to stimulate discussion and creative responses. However, if you are not a creative practitioner but have a real interest in collaborating with artists or are involved in other river projects, please do apply, as we are keen to develop all kinds of conversations around the themes.

The meeting will include a special guided tour of Megget Dam and resevoir. Megget dam is the largest earth embankment dam in Scotland. It was completed in 1983 and supplies up to 100 million litres (22 million gallons) of water each day. It takes 18 hours for this water to pass through 28-mile (45-km) long underground pipes, propelled only by gravity, to reach water treatment works in and around Edinburgh. 

If you would like to attend the meeting please note that places are limited, and must be booked before the 4th of November - details and forms can be downloaded from their website here
