The Floating Cinema navigated the waterways of the Olympic host boroughs of London during summer 2011. Created by Hackney-based architects Studio Weave and artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie), this extraordinary customised narrow boat hosted a varied and vibrant programme of free on-board screenings, quirky canal tours, talks and workshops. The Floating Cinema also presented larger scale outdoor film events for canal side audiences and informal drop-in Open Thursdays where you could meet the crew, relax and watch rare films selected especially for the Floating Cinema by Nina and Karen.

We at Tamar Project have been drooling over assembles work for some time. They are the team responsible for ‘Folly For A Flyer Over’, a temporary cinema that was built in Hackney, East London. Their work occupies derelict or unused spaces and transforms them into unique cinemas. Their current work is called ‘The Cinerolium’ (cineam+petrolium) and is, you’ve guessed it, a cinema in an old petrol station.
We love rivers, we love people, we especially love people who love rivers; so you can imagine how much we love Caught By The River.
“Caught By The River began in summer 2007 as a website based solely on a handful of passions shared by the people behind it. Angling, music, books, films, nature and pubs to name a few.”
Working across four communities in Plymouth ’Nowhereisland Radio’ is a four day radio project broadcasting on 107.9FM , created by community arts project Take a Part, and complimenting the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad project Nowhereisland.
Yesterday saw Tamar Project join forces with Nowhereisland, Alex Hartley‘s sculpture, in the Plymouth Sound. As well as an eclectic event on top of Jennycliff, attendees were offered the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the island in Adam Chodzko‘s kayak ‘Ghost’, Tamar Project’s current commission.
The sun was out all day and many people, of all ages, signed up for the trip. A collection of the videos will be uploaded to Youtube very soon, these will be along side the videos Adam has been creating of his trips with the communities along the banks of the River Tamar.
