Illustrated view of the route of The Ring
The Ring was a ground-breaking arts programme which celebrated the historic 21-mile Worcestershire circular canal that flows through the urban and rural landscapes of Worcester and Droitwich.
The breadth, ambition and calibre of the contemporary arts programme was a cultural first for Worcestershire.
The project was developed with the support of a range of organisations, led by the Canal & River Trust, a charity that looks after 2,000 miles of waterways across England and Wales; including the waterways of The Ring – Worcestershire and Birmingham Canals, the Droitwich Canals and the River Severn.
The programme ran from March to October 2018, with temporary artworks and events popping up around the waterways. Check our Projects pages for details of the artists and their artworks and Events pages for one-off events.
