‘There’s something in the water’. The Reasons: Community Stories and the Fens


Ramsey Rural Museum

As part of ‘The Reasons’ in the Bevills Leam Catchment, a project funded by AHRC Connected Communities, Loughborough University is organising an evening of convivial local storytelling, food and drink at the Ramsey Rural Museum on the 7th of June, 7pm-10pm.

The title of this event is: ‘There’s something in the water': The Reasons – Stories about water usage, drought and the future of the Fens.

The idea behind this specific event is to create a new, performative methodology, based on traditional practices, to support communities in collective problem-solving and imagining their own secure futures.

As part of this event, there is a judge writing poetry in response to the stories, a singer performing songs about the narratives, and courtroom artists/cartoonists who will capture the event in images. Once the stories are shared, we will all sit down for a communal meal made from local produce.
