The RV Furor Scribendi, Small Bells Ring ©

Charles Emerson

Small Bells Ring is an artwork created by artists Heather Peak and Ivan Morison of Studio Morison, centred on The RV Furor Scribendi, a fully functioning sculptural narrowboat which operates as a living research vessel, housing a floating library of short stories and a retreat for writers and readers.

Co-commissioned by Super Slow Way and Coventry City of Culture Trust, in collaboration with Lancashire and Coventry Library Services and their communities, supported by the Canal and River Trust and British Council, The RV Furor Scribendi will be launched in Accrington, Lancashire at the end of May and voyaged along the waterways of Lancashire, Manchester, Liverpool and Stoke-On-Trent, and spent the summer in Coventry as part of its year as UK City of Culture before returning to East Lancashire for British Textile Biennial 2021.
