|HINTS TO TRAVELLERS - a canal boat expedition
In Transit Festival
Two canel boat expeditions which evoked intrepid explorer Mary Kingsley's 1895 journey on the Ogooué River in present-day Gabon.
We travelled on the eco-barge Beauchamp from Paddington Basin and attempted to map Mary's recollections of the people, land, food, relgion and fauna of the Ogooué onto what we found in deepest West London.
Hints To Travellers was part of the IN TRANSIT season of artist led walks, talks, events and commissions taking place across the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London. It was supported by the Royal Geographical Society's archives.
