In early 2020, Creative Estuary commissioned four creative cultural projects with Estuary-based producers and artists, to contribute to the Associated Programme for Estuary 2021. SILTINGS is one of the commissions.

About the project
Light Vessel 21, together with a crew of creative professionals and volunteers from the surrounding community will examine the theme of SILT: “…soil that is carried along by flowing water and then dropped at a bend in a river or at a river’s opening…”

Working with artists, performers and local people of all ages, LV21 will embark on a journey to discover, capture and bring to life the forgotten stories and histories of Gravesham.

About LV21

LV21 [] is a historic, 40 metre steel-hulled lightship transformed into a floating art space and performance facility.

It’s an arts, culture, education and heritage organisation that specialises in community participatory site-specific work across art-forms, working in close collaboration with creative professionals and a variety of organisations, community groups and individuals of all ages and abilities to encourage active participation and empower participants to get involved with innovative cultural projects that affect positive social change.
