Folk for Folk

We are bringing #FolkforFolk to life - a project at the National Waterways Museum Gloucester. It is aiming to engage young people to develop a programme of events and an exhibition inspired by the Canal & River Trust Folk Art collection.

The project encompasses artist commissions, community engagement, events and an exhibition. Opening March 23rd, the exhibition will showcase a selection of the canal folk art collection from the museum, alongside new interpretations created for the project.

The project is funded by Arts Council England and the Canal & River Trust.
