Viewpoint Storying


A CONFLUENCE OF ART AND HERITAGE


Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Riversmeet Community Co- operative is creating a year-long programme of art works and activities to celebrate the rivers of Cockermouth. At the heart of this programme and the town’s heritage, is the ‘VIEWPOINT’, formed by the confluence of the Derwent and Cocker. Here, the rivers shaped much of Cockermouth’s industrial past, today it attracts locals and visitors, as manufacturing gives way to a place of tranquillity and reflection.


That’s the story so far because the VIEWPOINT initiative is also a way of capturing people’s opinions, questions, dreams and aspirations for living with the rivers in the future. Led by Project Manager, Cathy Newbery and artist, David Haley, the series of projects will generate many stories of the rivers. With the help of local storytellers, Jeff Wallcook and Ros Earthy, the first of these events uses the poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s word, ‘storying’, to make and tell stories, as a way of sharing river tales. This free event is for all ages and will be part of the Heritage Open Days on Sunday 10th September, 11.00am and 2.00pm, at the Confluence.


Other events will include working with Kirkgate Arts, to theme this year’s Lantern Parade, ‘Rivers of Light’ (1st December) and in the New Year, a ‘River Museum Box’ project with local schools and the Cockermouth Heritage Group. Lovell Homes have already enhanced the site, where temporary artworks and events will eventually give way to permanent features on site next spring.


As well as discovering heritage of the past, the VIEWPOINT programme is also about making heritage for our futures and this means learning how to live with our rivers now. Allerdale Borough Council and Cockermouth Town Council are keen to see that the project is working with people from all communities and agencies connected with the rivers; working together to understand that the rivers are formed from the whole ecosystem and the people who live there.


Indeed, many people have already had their say by writing and drawing on the back of a VIEWPOINT postcard at the Riversmeet Cockermouth Show stall. So, what is your point of view? How may we learn from Cockermouth’s confluence? Why is heritage important for our futures?


The story continues… For more information contact Cathy on 07770 714 103, or email: reuse@riversmeet.org
