Waterscapes as Livescapes: Transient Communities and the Practice of Heritage of Glasgow’s Forth and Clyde Canal, Scotland

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


This paper discusses how practices of heritage, employing human and non-human actants (Bennet, 2010) within the location of the waterscape, can provide a platform where social space, identity and sense of belonging activate the livescape. A series of creative workshops, celebratory events and participant-led exhibitions in locations exposed tensions and gaps in the perception of the inland waterway livescape by its communities.
