An intervention negotiated to draw attention to an essential
aspect of Bristols maritime history which was largely elided
in the Festival celebrations.
Bristol?s maritime heritage is a multi-layered construct.
We remind ourselves of historical realities when we begin to
peel away layers and look closely at seemingly innocuous things
like packets of sugar. Creatively this idea encourages us to
acknowledge the tensions & discomfort that has been so much
a part of the historical trade in sugar.? Eddie Chambers
this project was realised thanks to support & advice from:
