Waterweek 2022

Waterweek 2022

Together artists Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still have been following an organic process of being with and thinking about water and where this process will take them. A water wandering; inquisitive, interactive, immersive, reflective, poetic, experiential, unexpected, spontaneous and flowing. On the way they have constantly looked for ways to share their experience and convey their rapidly growing concerns and reverence for water.

Their unravelling sense of awe at the complexity of water, their experience of it in their exploration and the ineptitude they felt in conveying the wonder of their discoveries through their art led to the creation of Waterweek, a now annual public event mixing the practical, mythical and artistic, inviting conversation, appreciation and education in surprising ways and places.

Now in its 7th year, Waterweek has evolved into a wider collective of artists and others with enthusiasm for water and the Waterweek concept. They include among many artists Christine Binnie, Julie Ford, Laura Jordan, Raphael Whittle and Jane Trowell; pond conservation expert ‘Pete the Pond’; members of the Cuckmere and Pevensey Levels Catchment Partnership; and Graham Kean, local historian and Wealden District Council’s drainage expert and leader of Wealden Walks. Many others have become an integral part of Waterweek too, returning year after year interweaving art, industry, history and ecology to make the interactive art piece that is Waterweek.

See below for the wide spectrum of events on offer this year during Waterweek 2022. All events are free and all are welcome.
