More information about the REFLECT PROJECT

Two specially curated weekends of sound, light, music and art will unite local communities, regional and international artists to explore the connection between coastal living and wellbeing.
Through a series of briefings, talks and workshops running since early spring, REFLECT has brought people together to discuss their own lived experiences and connections to the coast. The project culminates this autumn with a large-scale outdoor sound and light event, featuring new commissions and works by international and local sound and visual artists, plus community groups. 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.
