A magnificent exhibition of river-inspired artwork created by young people around the world working in collaboration with professional artists to explore and express what rivers mean to communities today.

This year we have worked with young people from Barking & Dagenham, Exeter, Worcestershire, Kenya, Malawi and Palestine who are in year one of the project alongside Bromley & Bexley, Hull, Reading, Nepal, Nigeria and Sierra Leone who are in year two.

Rivers of the World has worked with 30,000 12-14 year olds across the UK and in 30 countries around the world to inspire young people about rivers through art and creativity.
