Art at the Heart of the RUH, 44AD and research academics at the University of Bath unique partnership project - River is the Venue (RiV) combines water science, art and information technologies. Funded by the Public Engagement Unit of the University of Bath and led by a team of researchers and art professionals, RiV has contributed a fresh and exciting perspective on the water heritage of the historic City of Bath.
RiV has enabled local artists to communicate the flood history of the River Avon of the City of Bath through art installations, a sound piece, puppetry performance and participatory art workshops for communities in Bath. This range of evidence-based, flood inspired artworks produced throughout the project will engage RUH Bath patients, visitors and staff on stories of the great flood of 1968 but also show the river as an asset for the City of Bath and as a core element of its social history.
