Collective Spirit

We went and saw a remarkable boat - Collective Spirit - at the weekend. It will soon set sail on its maiden voyage but before then it somehow made its way inland to Central Milton Keynes (one of the furthest points from the sea in the UK!) and featured as part of our IF Festival.
The 30ft boat, crafted by a fearlessly adventurous team of boat builders and volunteers, has been made from wood donated by people from Milton Keynes and across the South East. All of the donations have special stories behind them - some profound, some happy, some unique and some that are quite simply extraordinary. It was great looking at how the wood had been sliced and pieced together and working out the objects original use. See this link here to see if it's visiting somewhere near you.
