Collaborating with young people from communities along the Great Glen, our new project Inland Navigation is supported by Historic Environment Scotland and will explore sites on the Caledonian Canal and the waters it connects.
Circus Artspace artists: Richard Bracken, Nicola Gear and Lorna Campbell, will work with young people from diverse backgrounds through community partnerships.

Completed in 1822, the Caledonian Canal will be 200 years old in 2022. Just as the canal links Inverness in the East and Fort William in the West, our project will involve young people living in Inverness, Fort Augustus and Fort William. Communities that lie along the Great Glen have their own unique relationships with each section of the canal and we hope to explore each place's geology, economics, ecology, history, engineering, architecture and more.
Artworks produced will be displayed publicly at various sites in Summer 2022.
