Our final event is at Newport Wetlands RSPB Reserve on Saturday 4th March 11am-4pm.
Join us on Saturday 4th March from 11am onwards for the final event of The (Future) Wales Coast Path and the unveiling of a new gwaith celf* at Newport Wetlands.
Come and see our lighthouse installation in its new home and find out more about our connections to a community in the Indian Sundarbans and the shifting relationship between land and water.
Take a short walk to the môr* with artist Alison Neighbour and marine social scientist Dr Emma McKinley and create your own maps of intertidal space.
Enjoy a big screen showing of our brand new film documenting a year of exploring on the Gwent Levels, and a film made with the community on the Indian ynys* of Sagar.
We’re also excited to launch our collective Guidebooks for the Future at this event, co-created with local people who’ve walked and talked with us over the past 12 months and with our friends in Bengal. The books is full of maps and photographs to inspire your own teithiau* on the Levels, and we’ll have free copies for you to take away.
All welcome, drop in throughout the day. For the walk, please arrive at the Visitor Centre in time to set off at 11am. The walk will last approximately 1.5 hours and is on level ground, covering approx 2 miles. You can also explore the reserve independently during the day. The two films last 5 minutes each and will be shown on a loop in the visitor centre.
The event is free, but please note parking onsite is chargeable. There are buses available to the site and it is on a popular cycle route between Newport and Chepstow. Here is more information about getting there.
If you live locally this is a great opportunity to find out more about how our tirlun* may change in the future and how others living here have reflected on the challenges and possibilities it offers.
