A note from curator Jo Cook
” I designed this event to highlight the range of diverse people and places we have around Kanamaluka/River Tamar. There are so many talented people – musicians, artists, designers, farm workers, chefs, growers and this is designed so you are immersed in their stories and the landscape.
I have a great respect for the producers and the way they treat the land, the produce and their people. They have great integrity with what they do. I want you to connect on this experience and witness the unique and powerful stories that follow Kanamaluka/River Tamar.”
