project water stories

Way of the Water Archive explores life with communities along the Shannon river catchment. Much like the natural movement and evolution of water, Water Paths traverses the ecologies of people from urban to rural, from controlled & industrialised to commons & wild landscapes, and the spaces in-between.

A contributing project to the Eco Showboat, we look at existing communities of interest within these spaces, communities that remain situated - despite the effects of the socio-economic landscape. Our journey along the social pathways of the river, exposes new histories, our relationship to space, all the while relying on the generosity of a free-lift aboard local boats from the river’s heart in Limerick City to the Grand Canal in Tullamore.
