    Slow Boat is Ikon’s innovative three year project (2011-2013) aimed at engaging young people with contemporary artists and the local heritage and history of the Inland Waterways.


    The Ikon Youth Programme (IYP) is a group of young people aged 15-19 from Birmingham who meet regularly to make artwork, meet other young people, host events and develop their own projects.

    Slow Boat is a converted canal boat and a catalyst for exhibitions, events and discussion. Each year IYP members start by working closely with a lead contemporary artist who shares their practice with the group. IYP will work on board to organise a programme of activity and explore the canal network.
