HIGH WATER EVENT: 30 March 2021

Sarah Cameron Sunde

Tidelines partnered with Art-earth and Low Carbon Devon to run the High Water event where 60 artists and scientists and others from all round the Uk and the world talked about their work and relation to the oceans, climate change and the tides. The event to mark the highest tide of the year included an impressive show of local artwork and marine knowledge alongside others from other locations such as Stornoway, New York and the Sundarbans in the bay of Bengal.

Steve Macpherson

This was a 13 hour zoom ‘discussion’ to share many different approaches and responses to the tides, oceans and the changing climate. Tidelines is proud to have hosted and curated this event and to have put our own estuary into the wider global context. The event sold out (capped at 200 tickets) and was a friendly, informative exchange of ideas which included film-making, installation artwork, print-making, moon science, poetry, dance, marine species science, story-telling, ritual, live-streamed wild swimming, a boat launch and live group singing and more!
