About Super Slow Way
Super Slow Way is an arts commissioning programme in Pennine Lancashire shaped by local communities working alongside a wide range of local, national and international artists and producers. Super Slow Way takes its name from a poem by Ian McMillan, the Canal & River Trust’s poet laureate for 2012, about the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, which runs across the area the programme serves.
The vision is for the canal to become a vehicle for bringing communities together on a waterway which everyone shares, exploring how radical and ambitious art programming by the people of Pennine Lancashire can develop creativity, strength and connectedness across and within communities.
