Two exciting weekends of sound, light, music and art bringing local communities, regional and international artists together to explore the connection between coastal living and wellbeing.
Through a series of briefings, talks and workshops REFLECT aims to bring people together to discuss their own lived experiences and connections to the coast. The project will culminate in a large-scale outdoor sound and light event. REFLECT aims to compare the impact of coastal living on resident’s mental health in two vastly contrasting coastal communities; Bude, North Cornwall and Gravesham, Kent.
Each event will present the stories and findings from the local area in an iconic coastal location. Using the dramatic cliffs and 91-meter sea pool in Bude and the epic LV21 art and performance space, housed in a 40-meter steel hulled ship in Gravesham.
REFLECT offers collaborators and spectators an opportunity to reflect on their own relationship with the sea and their mental health.
