Boston’s Global River exhibition coming to Fydell House this February

A display of Boston schools’ contribution to an international arts-based project linking schools around the world through the study of rivers is going to be presented in a forthcoming exhibition and opening preview event at Fydell House on Friday 24th February 2023.

This exhibition of artwork was created by Boston area secondary schools for the Global Rivers of the World Exhibition on London’s South Bank in 2021, and the Rivers of Hope procession which formed part of Queen Elizabeth II’s jubilee celebration in 2022.

The Global Rivers of the World exhibition
on London’s South Bank in 2021

Boston was twinned with schools in Katmandu, Nepal whose work was displayed alongside Boston’s in London. Organised by The Thames River Festival Trust with the help of Transported and local artist Emily Cartwright, these stunning display boards and flags showcase the creativity of our school children here in Boston.

The participating schools included:

  • Participating Boston Schools:
  • Boston Grammar School
  • Boston High School
  • Giles Academy
  • Haven High
  • Thomas Cowley
  • William Lovell

The preview event will be an opportunity for school students and representatives to see the work first before invited guests arrive to celebrate their talent and achievements.

Following the preview, the exhibition will be open to the public during Fydell House’s opening times until April 2023.
