Confluent: River of Words

As part of the River Stour Trust’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2018, and funded by the Dedham Vale AONB Sustainable Development Fund.

Confluent: River of Words collects and preserves first and second hand accounts from the people who contribute to the conservation and preservation of the river to make the valley an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Stuart presents them as a series of podcasts and text installations at the Granary Tea Room, Sudbury, Suffolk and the RST boats 'Rosette' and 'Edwardian Lady'.

The project launch was on 31st March 2019 at The Granary Tea Room, Sudbury.
